take umbrage(redirected from taking umbrage)
To become offended or angered by something. Hey, I take umbrage at the idea that I didn't put my full effort into this project.
Feel resentment, take offense, as in Aunt Agatha is quick to take umbrage at any suggestion to do things differently. This expression features one of the rare surviving uses of umbrage, which now means "resentment" but comes from the Latin umbra, for "shade," and presumably alludes to the "shadow" of displeasure. [Late 1600s]
