51 of the Best Fed Up Quotes

Originally the phrase ‘fed up’ was experiencing that uncomfortable and unpleasant feeling of having way too much to eat, literally being fed up. However, the phrase can now be used in more situations than just having too much food.

You can be ‘fed up’ with a feeling or an emotion, with someone’s actions towards you or others, with working a certain job, or you can be ‘fed up’ with a day, a week, a month or a year.

Saying the phrase means that you are done with something or someone, have had enough, tired of the same things or are simply overly bored with something or someone. Some words with the same meaning as the phrase are, sick of, tired, jaded, bored and weary.
