BRITISH VS. AMERICAN ENGLISH (PISSED)

Welcome back everyone and happy Wednesday! This week, we are looking at British vs American English Vocabulary.

Today we are focusing on the colloquial word PISSED

American definition: Angry. 

Example 1: When we got in a car accident, my dad was so pissed

Example 2: I can't believe you didn't call me on my birthday. I'm pissed.

We also use this as a phrasal verb, TO PISS (someone) OFF

Example 3: That really pissed me off

British definition: Drunk.

Example 4: We got so pissed last night at the party.

Example 5: You seem pretty pissed. Should we go home?

Example 6: He had two beers and he was already pissed

We looked at this in a Daily Vitamin post from 2015. You can read that post here:

Tomorrow we will look at the words LORRY and TRUCK.

That's it for today. Thank you for reading!
