An action taken by one friend towards another after being
provoked past that individual's threshold or tolerance for annoyance, disagreement, or disrespect towards him/her. An Italian often
has a much lower
than normal tolerance for aggravation, and will prompt
a "time out" by saying "Are you f---ing serious
right now bro'?" or "How you gonna come off like
that to me?". He will
then place the friend (sometimes ex-friend) on "time out" for an indefinite time period, not talking, calling, nor returning phone calls. In extreme
cases, the melancholy
try anything to get back together
with his/her friend. The exchange
of online, often
sentimental, greeting cards are a popular option.
Jason had had enough... he pulled
up next to Manny in his Camaro exclaiming, "That's it bro'. You're on time out!"
