Mensagem:  There are 360 degrees in a circle. 

If you do "a one eighty", you turn around, you go in the opposite direction.  If you are going north, you turn around and go south.  If you are going east, you turn around and go west.

If you are a "complete one eighty" from someone else, you are completely different.  If he is lazy, you are a hard worker.  If he is a liar, you are trustworthy.  If he is a bad student, you are a good student.  If he is a bad husband, you are a wonderful husband.

I'm a complete one eighty from that guy= I am completely different from that guy.
