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....)
