When something or someone annoys you or bothers you very much you can say they drive you up the wall. (In some places they say drive me up a wall)
- My neighbor plays loud music late at night. He drives me up the wall.
- The train delays in NYC drive me up the wall.
- People who don’t follow the traffic rules drive me up the wall.
How about you? What drives you up the wall?

Everything Your GRAMMAR BOOK Didn’t Teach You
Yes, your grammar book probably taught you the difference between during and while, but it probably didn’t teach you how we actually use those words in everyday English. This book does!
You’ll also learn how to really use phrases such as:
- By Friday and Until Friday
- In the end and At the end
- I’m bored and I’m boring
- Even if and Even though
- Just and Only
- Much and Many
- Stop doing it and Stop to do it…and so much more!
You’ll also learn how to use causatives, conditionals, frequency adverbs, modal verbs, articles, and prepositions.
