    Default worked up about

    Dear all,

    Please help me understand this phrase. I also put the context below:


    "Are you guys nuts? Smoking and porn early morning," I said.
    “What are you so worked up about? Why not do the best things when one is still fresh,” Jeremy said.


    Thanks a lot!

    What are you so upset/disturbed/stressed/angry about?
