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?
