    Angry Mrs

    What is the meaning of the following saying:

    "I'll go to the foot of out stairs"

    "It really gets my goat"

    "He/she has more cars than you can shake a stick at"

    Please double check this. It does not quite make sense.

    "It really gets my goat"
    It really gets to me, irritates me, hits home ...

    "He/she has more cars than you can shake a stick at"
    Has considerable more then she needs.

    It is a saying often used in the north of England. It is normally used to express surprise, or amazement. A variation of this is "I'll go to the top of our stairs."

    My mum's from Wigan, and she sometimes uses this phrase.
