"Racist bastards who push it too far. Till a riot explodes like a petrol bombed car. ANGER - HATE - AGGRO - RAGE"
Oi Polloi - sticking the boot in since 1981 Comment by: poet    Rated:5/5
aggro is just general violence Comment by: andy mackay   
In the States, "aggro" is an abbreviation of "aggressive," specifically describing someone in the act of angry, violent assault. Commonly seen on the Jerry Springer Show and at drunk frat parties across the US. Comment by: sally    Rated:4/5
'I'm not going to THAT pub again. That guy's there and I don't need the aggro!' Comment by: Funkyfairycakes   
It looks as if the usage (meaning) in the US is different from the usage in Commonwealth countries (UK, Australia, NZ etc.). The US usage seems to lean towards actual violence (like a short form of 'aggression'), and in Commonwealth countries more towards bother, trouble and harassment (like a short form of 'aggravation'). A typical Commonwealth English usage would be, "Lisa? Haven't seen her for months. She was always on at me for some f*ckin' thing or other, and it was just too much aggro, so I left." Or maybe, "I found out she was married, though the bitch had never told me, and I didn't need that kind of aggro." Comment by: Gairlochan    Rated:4/5

brassed off -
United Kingdom flag
Rating:1.1  
Details
If you are brassed off with something or someone, you are fed up. similar to American English "Pissed off"
"Pissed off" isn't American - it's British. When Americans are angry, they are 'pissed' - which is confusing, because that means 'drunk' in British English. Comment by: Ralph Liam    Rated:3/5
We (Americans) use "pissed" or "pissed off," actually. I hear "pissed off" more often then simply "pissed." Or, "ticked off" which is a slightly cleaner version. Comment by: Kristen   
Americans use "pissed off" all the time, as in "I'm just pissed off today!" There is also "piss off" to mean "go away" or "get lost." Not very nice, though. Comment by: ohnoone   
Or we could all get "pissed" on a bottle of wine. Comment by: Michelle   
Nope, not all of us. "Pissed" never means drunk in the US (nor, I presume, in Canada). Of course, "piss off" meaning "go away" is common on both sides of the pond. Comment by: Jim   
listening to you bitch about it is pissing me off Comment by: cat
