    pissed

    Now there was no mistaking it; he was definitely pissed. “Do you have any idea what I risked to come here tonight?” he hissed. “Not only from your people, but mine?”


    pissed = drunken?

    Not only from your people, but mine= Both your people and mine??

    Re: pissed

    pissed can mean either drunk or furious.

    'Not only from your people, but mine= Both your people and mine'. Correct.

    Re: pissed

    I'd use "pissed off" to mean "furious" and "pissed" to mean drunk. I would never use "pissed" alone to mean "furious", although I've heard it used that way on American TV.
