    Seriously, plate? FULL.

    I stared at her mouth, horrified, as she smirked. And then, just like that, she was gone. The air near my face wafted slightly, like someone had just opened a window.

    “I don’t need this!” I said to the empty room. “Seriously, plate? FULL.”

    But there was no reply.

    Re: Seriously, plate? FULL.

    I'm not sure about this one, but when someone says their plate is full, it means they have all they can handle.

    Right now, my plate is pretty full at work. I can't handle another big assignment.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
