    as him having ago

    Dear All,

    Please look at the para below. What does the phrase "as him having ago" means in the context. Many thanks.

    [I was just on the phone with my boyfriend and we were chatting as normal. He said something that I misinterpreted as him having ago and I had a bit of a rant in my defense. After I had finished he said a bit touchy aren't we and I said that I wasonly defending myself due to what he said and he pointed out that he hadn't said it that way and that I had ot the wrong end of the stick. I realised that I had and tried to explain and apologise but he just cut me dead and said "right I've had enough of this" while I was trying to say sorry. I said it wasn't nice of him just to cut me off like that and I started to cry. He just said again "I can't be bothered with, goodbye".]

    Re: as him having ago

    It should be 'having a go (at me)' - an idiom meaning (verbally) attacking me.

    Where did you find this paragraph? There are many more mistakes in it.
