    teed off = angry and upset
    feeling down = sad
    mixed up = confused
    maxed out = overextended (financially)

    'teed off' in BE doesn't mean that- 'tee off' is to start, from golf.

    It's a golfing term in AE too.

    • A: What time are you starting?
      B: I tee off at 2.
      A: That gives us time for a few drinks.


    :wink:
