(redirected from take it the wrong way)

take (something) the wrong way

To misunderstand or misinterpret something, especially in such a way as to take offense at what is said or done. Now, I hope you don't take this the wrong way, but I think it would be easier for everyone if you waited to visit until the baby is a few weeks old. I simply don't post online comments anymore, because too often what I say is taken the wrong way.
