How does Delilah’s impatience show itself?

Judges 16:13 (ESV)

13 Then Delilah said to Samson, “Until now you have mocked me and told me lies. Tell me how you might be bound.” And he said to her, “If you weave the seven locks of my head with the web and fasten it tight with the pin, then I shall become weak and be like any other man.”

Delilah is getting fed up with Samson. Her growing impatience with him is shown in the increasingly abrupt character of her demands. Here she loses the word please; her politeness is vanishing.1 She simply demands, Tell me how you might be bound.
