: I would like to know the exact meaning of this expression: Felt like the dickens
: in this context. a helicopter crew is looking for a survivor in the water:
: One of the crew says:
: "He was nowhere to be seen.
: I felt like the dickens right then".
: Thank you very much
Felt bad. Dickens = devil.
