    fed up about or fed up with something?

    It's me again.

    I would like to ask you about under what circumstances I should use fed up with or fed up about something.

    In my opinion, they mean exactly the same but I may be wrong.

    As an example, I present a sentence:

    "Mike's really fed up about it."

    Could we say: "Mike's really fed up with it?"

    Thank you.

    Both your sentences are fine and there is no difference in meaning.

    I just want to add that "fed up with" is far more common than "fed up about".
