In-your-face 咄咄逼人
    2018-12-06  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A: What’s up? Why do you call for a meeting at this moment when everybody is so busy?

B: There’s something I’ve intended to say for a long time concerning your performance at work. I’m gonna be “in-your-face” at times and I’m not gonna apologize for it, so buckle up.

Note: This word means “aggressively intrusive.” In basketball or soccer, for instance, aggressive defenders are often described as “in-your-face.” The defender stays close to someone he’s guarding against and never leaves him alone, not for a fraction of a second.

To the player being guarded, this type of defense is irritating and annoying. Used in other areas, when someone’s style is described as “in-your-face,” it’s aggressive and annoying.
