Today I've come across a phrase and now I'm at a loss and confused a little bit.
- I don't cook sushi because I got told off I was trying once.
It sounds very "English" and for a non-native speaker is a little bit unusual.
It is usual and common for you?
Or would you say the same thing in another way?
Also, can you explain me, why do we have " I got" rather than to have "I was told off", please?
