: : What is the meaning of this sentence:- Please get over it?

: "Get over it" means "stop whining". For example if the waitress served you cold coffee this morning and you're still venting your outrage to your co-workers at 10:00 someone may tell you to get over it.

Adding the "please" to the sentence doesn't make the blunt "get over it" sound any more polite. The "please" suggests that the person who said it begging whoever they are speaking to stop whining, perhaps because they have been whining for a long time. Pamela
