    I'm over

    Hi.
    As I can hear something like it's over is it possible then to say I'm over?
    If no, what would I say if I were annoyed with something and I was full of that?

    I would be grateful if you dear teachers would highlight my mistakes in the post.

    Thank you for a reply given.

    NOT A TEACHER.

    You could say, "I've had enough."

    Re: I'm over

    "I'm over" isn't something we'd say.

    You can say "That's it! I'm done with this/you!"

    Re: I'm over

    However, "I'm over you" is a very popular song phrase. (As in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oN_Af...eature=related)

    PS: But it doesn't mean "I'm annoyed with you," right.

    No, it is something you say at the end of a relationship; it means that "I moved on".

    You can also say "Get over yourself" to someone who's pretentious and annoying; it means "stop being so self-important".

    Re: I'm over

    Closely related to "I'm over you" in the sense bc and ff describe is "I'm over it":
    "My girlfriend broke up with me a while back and I was pretty upset, but it's OK, I'm over it".
    or..
    "Had a bad dose of the flu a few days ago but I'm over it now".

    But "I'm over it" is also commonly used to mean "disenchanted", "fed up":
    "Do you want to come to the club tonight?"
    "No, I'm over it – way too expensive and full of ego-trippers these days".

    "Don't even talk to me about true love, I'm so over it!"

    "I just don't want to hear any more excuses from him, I'm over it, big time!"

    Thanks. That's new to me.

    Thank you, JMurray for your thorough reply, does the big time mean very?
    Thanks.

    Re: I'm over

    does the big time mean very?
    .. in a major way, in a big way, to an extreme degree, that sort of thing. It's often hyphenated "big-time!" and the stress is on "big".

    Re: I'm over

    How about I'm through in some contexts?
