Hi,

Considering this an informal chat, how would you answer?

-Why'd you shove off your beard?
-Grew tired of being made fun of (1)
-Grew tired of being made fun (2)
-Grew tired being made of (3)

Is any of the three correct?
If no, how would you say that?

'Got tired' seems to be exchangeable with 'grew tired' in this context, is it not?

I'm trying to pick up informal communication skills in this question rather than the grammar rules.

1 (and it's shave not shove). Got would also work.
