Got me tight
When someone’s really upset, they might use the slang term ‘GMT’, which stands for “got me tight.” It’s a way of expressing that they’re frustrated or annoyed.
This abbreviation, GMT, is used to describe the tense, tight feeling that often happens when someone is extremely angry. It’s like their feelings are wound up so tight, they could snap.
It’s thought that both GMT and ‘got me tight’ first started being used in a city that’s no stranger to strong feelings – Philadelphia. So, if you hear someone using GMT, they’re probably more than just a little bit peeved!
