What's the quintessential format to "a life", that is, when one tells you to "get a life"? Always and evidently, "a life" is something more like that of the life being lived by the one who exclaims the demand because the one lived by that focused by the demand is not up to pert in the eyes of the other. Often times, the recipient is behaving less mature than someone else and deservingly needs to be readjusted by the remark so that they can realize what they are doing. One can wonder that maybe this is part of their "life".
