Have you ever made a mistake in your office and the boss got very angry with you? Or maybe you did something wrong at home and your husband/wife/mother/father yelled at you…? In this kind of situation, we can use the idiom, to bite someone’s head off. It means, to speak angrily at someone. Here are some examples:
- The boss bit my head off when I came late this morning
- Jack said his wife bit his head off when he came home drunk
- If you miss the deadline, the teacher is going to bite your head off
