frosts my grommet - Idiom: "makes me feel extremely [annoyed or] unhappy." Same as "chaps my ass," I'd say. Several of the examples come from the same source: sportswriter Tom Bartsch.

e.g., "Thatís bad enough, but the fact that the television announcers never call them on it is what really frosts my grommet. " |    "But when someone intentionally attempts trails/obstacles that are well beyond the rigs capability, it just frosts my grommet, esp. if he happens to be in my group or in front of me." |    "This really chaps my ass and frosts my grommet when I think about it. I forked out $180 for my ticket (my fault, missed the early bird sale) and I think it was about $120 for the RV site." |    "How did 'liberal' get to be a dirty word? I know that seems to contradict the headline, but it frosts my grommet that the popular usage of an important word gets twisted around to mean something almost diametrically different than what the dictionary says." |    "But the fact that a federal agency can just tell a company not to complete a multi-zillion-dollar facility because some union members across the continent from them donít want it built just frosts my grommets. And Harry Reid comparing the NLRBís stand to the Founding Fatherís approach to government takes my grommets down to 0 degrees Kelvin." |    "Still, though, stuff like this really frosts my grommet; since the rest of us (and our companies) end up footing the bill." |    "A minor gripe, but still one of those things that frosts my grommet." |    "(In light of the terrifying power of censorship, I've decided to cravenly cower to the squeaky wheels that run this society, and replace all possibly-vulgar terms with the names of medieval weapons). This whole situation really frosts my grommets: while Bettman and his many Flameberges may puff out their chests and point to themselves for doing the right thing, it's pretty moronic to think of hockey as some sort of forum for a debate on morality and censorship. Hockey is entertainment, plain and simple. . . ." |    "Frankly I think Vovin and Windsearcher22 just wanted to see how I'd handle the situation. I've tried not to be vulgar or downright mean but being called 'stupid' - especially by someone who has proven themselves to be just that -- really frosts my grommets." |    "That kind of stuff honestly gets deep under my cranky old man skin and frosts my grommets to no end." |    "And do you want to know what really frosts my grommet? What the opponents of same-sex marriage are doing now is not demonstrably different than what whites in the Deep South were doing in the 1950s. Equal rights for blacks were going to arrive; it was only a matter of how long people would have to wait for justice to be served." |    "Thatís another big part of what frosts my grommet about this frenzy of Halper bashing: Itís not just his good name and reputation that are getting smeared, itís the good name and reputations of a whole battalion of people who worked on that epic auction." |    "Of the three players mentioned in the previous paragraph, I am convinced that Bonds and Clemens will both ultimately be admitted to the Hall of Fame. Bonds is so thoroughly despised by so many in the fourth estate that his election could very well take several years, but eventually heíll have to be voted in. Though it frosts my grommet to say it, he was the best player of his generation." |    "Dude? It really frosts my grommets when I hear someone calling people 'dude.' That's just rude." |    Just about anything I hear Chuck Schumer say frosts my grommet.
