Mensagem:  PP,  I'm sorry, but I don't understand the meaning of the translation.  How does taking a loan out "take it out on" the Correios?

I drop my watch and break it.  I take it out on you by hitting you.
When I was young, my father did not let me date.  I take it out on you by not letting you date.
I awaken with a hangover.  I take it out on you by yelling at you.
I am fired by the boss.  I take it out on you by kicking your dog.
