Mensagem: 

Tom, do you think "to tick off" is related to "to tee off"?  It couldn't refer to golf.

 

What is it that the Limeys say?  Isn't something about "getting one's knickers in a bunch"?  Or is that related to someone losing their patience?

 

Years ago people would say "to frost".  (It really frosts me that....)  And how about "to rile"?  I think my mom would say that.  Dad, of course, preferred "to piss me off".  Oh, and then there's "to get my goat".  (It gets my goat that....)
