"Keep your pants on" nghĩa là gì?

Đừng lo! Nó không cắn đâu :D. Photo courtesy: norman scobbie

"Keep one's pants/shirt on" = giữ lấy cái quần/áo -> nghĩa là bình tĩnh, không nên tức giận hay mất kiên nhẫn.

Ví dụ
"I know at the time (Eddie) was a bit uncertain as well, but then the next day when we all came together to talk about it, it was like keep up the good work, don't do that again, but keep having fun on the TV and Sam keep your pants on.

She later told Carla what happened and how she has realised she is better off without him, which caused Carla to storm over to Adam's and call him out on his behaviour, branding him a "rotting chimp-man who can't keep his pants on".

Just keep your shirt on – the old monument will be gone soon enough. Then, I suppose, the air will be a little fresher, the birds will chirp a little sweeter, the lion will lay down with the lamb, and, oh, those ballyhooed (rùm beng) free food giveaways can begin again, in earnest (sốt sắng; tha thiết), on the town square.
