Neil
Hello and welcome to Authentic Real English. I'm Neil and joining me is Feifeiand Fred... my goat.

Feifei                                                
大家好。Neil,你这玩儿的又是哪一出?怎么把羊牵到录音间来了?这味道……It smells.

Neil
Fred doesn't smell! I've brought my goat into the studio to teach our listeners an expression you can use when something annoys you.

Feifei
Well, having smelly animals in the studioannoys me.

Neil
Well, in that case, Feifei, you can say, 'Smelly animals in the studio get my goat.'

Feifei
To get somebody's goat 就是我们要学习的表达。这个表达在一个人生气的时候能用得上。什么事情或人让你生气、烦恼,你就可以说什么什么 gets my goat

Neil
That's right. You can say something 'gets your goat' if it annoys you. You know what, Feifei? It gets my goat when people say my pet Fred is smelly.

Feifei
Ha! Here are some examples of people using the expression 'get somebody's goat'.

Examples
These queues at the post office really get my goat. I've been waiting for half an hour!

Argh, I don't believe itI've got a parking ticket! Traffic wardens really get my goat!

These calls from people selling insurance get my goat. They've rung seven times already this morning.

Neil
To get somebody's goatan expression you can use when something annoys you.

Feifei
注意,我们通常会在这个表达前用 really 来加强语气。比如 Train delays really get my goat. 火车延误特别让我恼火。

Neil
It seems to me quite a lot of things get your goat, Feifei.

Feifei
Not really, Neilapart from Fred.

Neil
Are you saying my goat gets your goat?

Feifei
Yes! Your goat really gets my goat!
