When a person threatens you into doing something or warning you if they mess with them what can happen to you. Sometimes indirectly.
1st person Can you pick up my shoes for me, 2nd person I see if I can . 1st person oh you can do that for me (said venom in the voice, like a crazy lady)? Being said in the sense of if you don't you will be sorry, later on. I don't like your attitude, wow scare tactics. So not cool. Whatever
