umbrage

Last year, my friend and I were both making some copies or something, and I asked how her school year had been.  It was about two weeks before the end, so this seemed like an OK question.  She bristled and said that it had been fine.  She went on that she doesn’t let things get to her, not students and certainly not adults.

My internal translation was that students and certain adults had gotten to her.
