    stroppy

    stroppy
    AHD:
    Chiefly British Easily offended or annoyed;
    ill-tempered or belligerent.
    I wonder what is the American informal word
    for this.
    Thank you.

    I don't know the American, but there's a nice BrE variation of 'in a strop' for when the person is in a bad mood.
