It's an Irish expression instead of using you scared the s** out of me, meaning you scared that person or frightened them.
I am Irish and we always use this phrase! We would say "you scared the bejesus out of me" meaning you really scared me! Hope that helps.
Hi, bejesus is an exclamation of surprise!
"You scared the bejesus out of me" is an idiomatic expression that typically conveys surprise or fear. The phrase is derived from the biblical name "Jesus," which is often used as a swear word or intensifier. In this instance, the speaker is emphasizing how much they were startled or frightened by the other person's actions. While the phrase is considered to be fairly mild, it should not be used in formal settings as it could be considered offensive to some.
Scare the bejesus out of (one) means to shock or frighten one very suddenly or severely. It's an Irish expression and it's informal. E.g. I look at what she does and it scares the bejesus out of me. I hope this has been helpful :-)
Hi Annie, Bejesus is Irish in origin. When someone says " You scared the bejesus out of me" it means you gave them quite a shock/fright/scare. It is a more polite version than saying "You scared the shit/crap out of me" in mixed company as some people find those words offensive.
Bejesus out of is slang. It is usually used to express surprise, like in "You scared the bejesus out of me!!" or "You scared the bejesus out of us".
We usually say “she just smack the heck out of me”…likewise it’s a slang, which means He beats the bejesus out me; or He beats the bejesus out of a gig as gizzard-splitter.
Bejesus is usually used as expression of surprise or emphasis and it comes from Irish. There is a phrase 'to scare bejesus out of someone' to scare someone very much. Instead of 'scared' could be used any adjective.
