영어 Slang of the Day #3: "Take a pill." 약 먹아야 되? 아니....

영어 Slang of the Day #3: "Take a pill."  약 먹아야 되?  아니....

This phrase means "you need to calm down" when there is some type of misunderstanding, or when the other person is overreacting to a situation.  For example, if you say something, and the other person reacts violently, when your comment wasn't serious, then "Take a pill" can be used.  You can also say "Take a chill pill."

Here are a few examples.
A.  I cannot believe that you just said that!  I am so angry right now!
B.  (o)  Calm down, you need to take a pill.
B.  (o)  Take a chill pill.
B.  (o)  You have misunderstood me.  Take a pill, man.

Given that this is slang, it is not appropriate for use in a business setting.
