: : : There is a row several other forums (Again, perhaps all those people are these people here.) about "another thing coming vs. another think coming. Any comments? Oh! Wait! I remembered to do a search and found this forum has had a row about this subject a few times. So, let me rephrase, any additional comments?

: : In my (Irish) experience the saying is: 'If you think THAT you have another think coming!'

: I don't know which came first. I thought it was "You've got another thing coming." And "think" was a comic variation.

I thought we established, when the question came up before, that it was "think" and that "thing" was a mishearing.
