If we’d just said we needed to borrow that money out of the company then it would have been, it seems to me it would have been simpler and perhaps my back would have been up a little bit less, because I wouldn’t have been patronised quite so much.

Geez... anyone knows what it means???

    To "get someone's back up" means to annoy or irritate them, anglicana.

    That man really gets my back up. He always thinks he's right.

    Don't ask me again or you'll get my back up.
