When someone says to you" you are trying me" how would you say that in another way?
I am moving this thread to the "English Only" forum
It would be helpful if you could give a little more context. But I suspect that in this case it means "You are causing me trouble" or "You are trying my patience," which means "You are testing to see how patient I can be with you (before I leave or get disgusted)."
Hope this is helpful.
It can also mean that you are on trial for a crime! Context is really important.
"You are getting on my nerves". I'm only guessing that this is the context you mean.
You are trying me = you are testing my patience/all the other suggestions people have made
Judge Smith is trying this case = Judge Smith is the presiding judge in this case.
Separate names with a comma.
