give someone a nudge

nudge — a gentle push [dict]

I always bear high appreciation on how efficiently things work in universities. My office desks had recently been replaced with new ones. Bravo! But hold on …

After the contractors fixed up the new furniture, they didn’t bother to take away the junk. They simply stacked the old desks and deserted them in the center of the room. Perhaps, understandably, they had no idea where to throw. I contacted the department store man, who promised to collect those woods immediately. But despite the constant reminder, it has been nearly 3 weeks now — nothing changed. Someone noticed the funny desk “hill” in my office. He said: “I will give the store man a nudge.”
