Get Your Dander Up
Get Your Dander Up : Phrases
To get excitedly angry - into a temper.
Don't get your dander up - I'm only doing my job!
The phrase has Dutch origins where op donderen means to burst into a sudden rage. This, in turn, comes from Donder=Thunder.
Alternative: Donder op! in Dutch means: Get out of here! or Hop it! Of course we only say this after we burst into a sudden rage.
