I’m going to tell you about Merriam-Webster’s definition of “tell me about it.”
tell me about it (idiom)
Definition of tell me about it
—used to say that one understands what someone is talking about because one has had the same or a similar experience
“Something is wrong with that computer.” “Yeah, tell me about it. I can never get it to work properly.”

Let me tell you about what happens when I (and perhaps you) click on that link. I receive a message that says “Unable to process this video.” However, I could still download it, although I got a message that told me “Google Drive can’t scan this file for viruses. Free.mp4 (1.4G) is too large for Google to scan for viruses. Would you still like to download this file?”
Too complicated or too much trouble? Tell me about it.
Once my son returns from teaching English in Jordan, maybe he can tell me about how to post that video (which he shot in our gazebo two weeks ago) to YouTube. If you do look at the video, tell me about which title you prefer:
- “Tell me about it.”
- “Free therapy with Ann.”
- “I’m listening.”
I can also tell you about the original, unedited, noisy, uncentered version of that video, which is here:
At this point, when I’m looking at a preview of this post, I’m telling you that video has this message: “Please wait. We are converting this video.”
Tell me about it.
In the meantime, I’m going to tell you about these recent photos I haven’t told you about before.
Which is your favorite photo? Tell me about it.
Tell me about your reactions to this music in the air:
I want to break free of more technical problems, but I won’t tell you about it. Instead, I’ll tell you about my gratitude to all who support my telling you about it, every day, here on WordPress.
Thoughts about those ways of expressing gratitude? Tell me about it.
YouTube now tells me that this very abbreviated, silent version of “Free Therapy with Ann” has shown up there.
My expression in that still shot, above, seems to say, “Tell me about it.” If I manage to post a longer version, I’ll tell you about it.
