  • Do you really want to know about over my shit, or did you mean to type all over my shit in the example sentence? (In common interpretation, they actually mean different things.) Did you make up the sentence, or did you actually see it used exactly like that somewhere? Jul 18, 2020 at 15:36
  • I saw in "Breaking Bad", but that sentence is me. Could you please tell me what they mean? Jul 18, 2020 at 16:35
  • In general, and this is still a bit vague and short, so I'm not turning it into an answer yet, I would look at it this way—I'll change the example a bit: (1) I'm over your shit. → I'm finished being upset with your antics. Let's get on with things. (2) I'm all over your shit. → I'm in your face and calling you to task about something; if you're there, so am I, checking up on you. Jul 18, 2020 at 16:41

The following three sentences all have different meaning:

(1A) The math teacher was over my shit today.

(2A) The math teacher was all over my shit today.

(3A) The math teacher was done with my shit today.

Phrases of the form "[pronoun] shit" can be replaced with one the following three alternatives:

  1. [Pronoun] clothing or other personal belongings

  2. [Pronoun] inapropriate behavior, shenanigans, or goofing-off

  3. [Pronoun] emotional turmoil

  4. "[Pronoun] case"

  5. "[Pronoun] drama"

After replacing "my shit" with phrases which are easier for well-educated people to understand, we obtain:

(1B) The math teacher was over my inappropriate behavior today.

(2B) The math teacher was all over my case today.

(3B) The math teacher was done with my inappropriate behvior today.

We can further translate these quotes from bad English into Good English.. To "get over" somthing means to forgive someone. Likewise, saying that "The math teacher was over my shit today" has somthing to do with forgiveness about 10% of the time. 90% of the time, an antonym of "forgive" would be more appropriate.

(1C) iday, rhe math teacher had gotten over, and was no longer upset by, my past inappropriate behavior.

(2C) The math teacher badgered me quite a lot today, and nit-picked everything.

(3C) The math teacher was impatient with me today. They were done with (finished tolerating) my inappropriate behvior.
