He flared up at me!


Storyline: Andy complains to Judy that the boss is being unreasonable, flaring up at him for something that isn't a big deal.
Judy: You look like you're fuming.  What's going on?
Andy: The boss is being unreasonable!  He flared up at me, making a mountain out of molehill!
Judy: What's the "molehill" he made a mountain out of?
Andy: I only made a few more copies, and I didn't think it was any big deal, but he blew up at me!
Judy: Well, he has been under a lot of pressure recently.  The company has been losing money and he's been a little bit depressed.
Andy: Well, I know he has the blues, but it doesn't mean he can vent his anger on me.
