Giving attitude

Hi! Here I am again.

I’ve heard this one in Rush Hour II movie:

" Don’t be giving me attitude, Lee. I’ve been here three days and we haven’t done shit. "

Can you please give a very simple meaning of the underlined phrases above.


In more formal English this sentence could look something like this:

Please don’t be angry with me Lee, I’ve been here for three days and we haven’t done anything.[YSaerTTEW443543]

TOEIC short conversations: Giving directions on how to get to the stadium[YSaerTTEW443543]

giving attitude means talking back or being a smart alec, such as making sarcastic remarks. havent done shit means done nothing.
