Hop Off

What does hop off mean?

Go away

Hop off means "Go away" or "Leave me alone." It is used both online and offline to tell a person that he should stop whatever he's doing and leave you alone.

The phrase comes from when a person is riding you too hard, almost like a car driving too close to your tail on the highway and you tell him to "hop off your tail." It gained popularity in the early-2000s as an alternative to the "Back off" phrase.

It may be used in a variety of situations, like when your partner is being too critical of you or your parent is telling you how to live your life. It is a good alternative to lashing out and regretting saying something really hurtful.

Example

"I really don't think you should be dating her. She's not right for you."
"Hop off! You don't even know her."

Hop off before you regret it
