Jump down (one's) throat

(Originally posted April 4th, 2006)

Definition: Being extremely angry or impatient at someone, vigorous verbal attack on someone, often unexpected on the part of the victim

Example 1: John and I were just talking. However, I must have touched a sore topic, because he immediately started to jump down my throat.

Example 2: When the man came home a third time smelling of gin, his wife jumped down his throat.
