: I received an e-mail from a friend (not a close one) saying "get over yourself". Does this have a specific meaning?
Yes. This is a fairly recent phrase meaning, 'stop being so pompous and self-important'.
I'm not sure of the origin, although I suspect it to be from down under. There's a similar phrase, 'have you got tickets on yourself', which is Australian.
