    Post thrown off

    ''I was thrown off when i saw...'' Can you tell me what does ''thrown off'' mean? I'm sorry i can't give you more context...

    Default Re: thrown off

    Surprised, confused. Discombobulated. As in, "thrown off balance" or "thrown off my train of thought."

    "Thrown for a loop" is a more emphatic version the same thing, but I'm not exactly sure where the loop comes in. Maybe the term originated with fighter pilots?
