    Small doubt

    Hey, I just made this thread simply cause I have on of those burning doubts and I simply need to know.

    Would it be correct if I said "Blow off steam on somebody", as in, get angry with that certain person. Thanks

    Not really, no. You "blow off steam" after you have become angry. Usually, you go away and do something else in order to release the anger and frustration that you have been feeling. We don't normally do this at another person.
