They say that patience is a virtue, but sometimes, it’s impossible to be patient anymore. For example, imagine that your roommate keeps borrowing your clothes. That might be OK… until she starts taking them out of your closet without permission or returns your favorite sweater with a big coffee stain on it! Sooner or later, you will not be able to be patient with her anymore. Eventually, you will feel fed up with the whole situation!

If you are fed up with something, you are frustrated or tired of it. You might be fed up with bad weather if you are someone who works outside. At the end of the term, you might be fed up with studying for exams. Actress Jennifer Aniston is fed up with the tabloid news. For years, gossip columns have been saying that she is pregnant. She got so tired of hearing rumors about her body that she wrote an opinion piece criticizing the media.
