I didn't mean literally that you flipped the lid, in this case. It was
just a general sentiment--hyperbolic, if you wish. And it's no effort at
all on my part. I hope this vibrates you in the right way. If not, just
put the phone in a different pocket.

I don't think that I flipped the lid (I put a lot less energy into my initial protrest than you have in vibrating me), though I may have (hopefully) nipped-in-the-bud or (perhaps more aptly) chopped-a-bit-at-the-kudzu.
