"The FBI is bugging me" the doctor said. Join the club, Mark thought "Where are they?" he asked.
What does "join the club" mean in the previous sentence?
Join the club ~ I'm in the same situation as you.
The FBI is bugging Mark too. (not just the doctor)
thx a lot Mi5. But wasn't supposed to be "I'm in the same situation as yours" since we're comparing the situations not the persons

No. "I'm in the same situation as you (are in)" is correct.
In British slang "in the club" means something totally different. Something to do with pudding. But I wouldn't know about such things anyway :-)
No, it means the same thing here unless it is just that I have never heard of it used anywhere else.
No Vic, I heard it in some film the other day, I distinctly remember pissing myself. I think that they were using it as a euphemism for homosexuality. Like as in, "You won't get anywhere with him, love, he's in the club, wink wink."
Don't you mean "in the closet"? Like a gay person who hasn't come out.
"In the club" means pregnant
I think you should join the club...
Sorry Damian! I know you didn't write the last post, because I did! I don't know why I put Damian in the name box. Sorry...
CG: The movie you watched... It sounds like a film made for women.
They said "wink, wink". That's Martian dialect. Could the movie be E.T.?
Join the Club... That phrase reminds me of that old man that appeared in the posters with the legend "I want you to join the U.S army!" You've seen it, haven't you?
You ought to join the club!!!
If I joined the club I would be on all the news programs today and on GMTV tomorrow morning then I would set out to make a fortune.
Could anyone give some examples on that expression?
"I have detention after school, every night this week!" cried Jane.
"Join the club", said someone else who also had detention every night that week.
