Other questions about "Oald"

Q: I don't think "Did you get told off?" [OALD] is used much in the U.S. Then, what kind of expression is often used instead? Is it ”Did he/she get mad at you?”
A: I think that expression is used often in the US, though its incidence might vary from region to region. I guess personally I probably wouldn't say it, but if someone around me said it I probably wouldn't notice it or think it was unusual.

A couple of other ways you could say it:
Did you get in trouble?
Did you get yelled at?

These might or might not be a little more common in my area (California).
