May 20, 2014

I love that Southern Living posted these little phrases on Pinterest. They are such a cute little design! Anyway… Don’t Get Your Feathers Ruffled…. guesses?

It means, don’t get yourself in a snit. Which may be another southern saying in itself… it means don’t get all upset about something. Stay calm, don’t be bothered… don’t let it ruffle your feathers!

Example, “Don’t let your mother-in-law ruffle your feathers, she doesn’t know what she is talking about.*”

Direct quote from this month from someone I work with! Now you know… don’t let them ruffle your feathers!
