English everyday – strop and in a mood

‘My computer is having a strop. So is my daughter! 😦 ‘

You can throw a strop, have a strop or be in a strop. Can you guess the meaning? The picture at the top is also a clue.

Strop means to be in a bad mood, angry or sulking. Generally feeling bad and angry. We also use ‘in a mood’ without ‘bad’ to say someone is angry, sulking, annoyed or grumpy. If someone is often this way you could say; ‘he/she is stroppy,’ or ‘he/she is moody.’ But it’s not very polite.

In a huff, in a grump, and miffed are a few more expressions to say someone is in a bad mood. There’s lots more, do you know some?
