“That Billy is so annoying! He really gets my goat.” 「あのビリーはすごくイラつくね!超むかつく!」


Sometimes racehorses have goats as companions. The goat friend keeps the racehorse calm. If someone wanted a horse to lose a race, he might steal the horse’s goat friend. So when someone bothers us—they know just how to make us lose our cool—we can say they “get our goat”.
