- Yes, a euphemistic form of "piss off", in the sense of "to annoy". — Paul G 09:52, 23 March 2007 (UTC)
Keep. Usually considered a more polite way of saying piss off.--Dmol 10:43, 23 March 2007 (UTC)
- Ok. Cites would be nice. bd2412 T 13:40, 23 March 2007 (UTC)
- Yes -- surprisingly difficult to find cites, considering that it is verbally very common, considered informally acceptable in almost any company. However, here are three:   . I assume that, as with piss off, the usage is (mainly UK). --Enginear 14:34, 23 March 2007 (UTC)
- Piss off in that sense is quite common in the U.S.; it's only the "leave" sense that's (mainly UK). That said, I've never heard pee off in any sense, so it might be U.K.-specific even though what it's a euphemism for is not. —RuakhTALK 15:54, 23 March 2007 (UTC)
- KEEP Yes, I believe it is mainly a British term, not really euphemistic, more a lightweight piss off, just like twit is a mild way of calling someone an idiot!--Williamsayers79 14:29, 25 March 2007 (UTC)
Keep. Can't recall when or where, but I think I've heard this used by Brits. Not so sure if I've ever heard it in Canada or the U.S. In any case, the entry now includes sourced quotations. -- WikiPedant 15:25, 12 April 2007 (UTC)
- The entry currently only has one cite, but if we add Enginear's first two cites (with are both in the sense given in the article), we'll have three. —RuakhTALK 16:21, 12 April 2007 (UTC)
Question, though: Enginear's third cite suggests that pee off might be euphemistic for piss off in any sense — in which case this seems like sum-of-parts (with pee being the catch-all euphemism for piss)? —RuakhTALK 16:21, 12 April 2007 (UTC)
RFV passed. Thanks, Enginear. —RuakhTALK 23:33, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
- But, def modified to accommodate all our cites. —RuakhTALK 23:34, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
