I've a bone to pick with you!

Bone to pick with you IMAGE

When you have a bone to pick with someone, it means that you are annoyed about something they have said or done, and you want to talk to them about it.

This saying may refer to dogs squabbling over a bone that more than one of them wants to eat.

"Excuse me, I've got a bone to pick with you! You said you were
going to bring back that CD you borrowed, but you haven't!"
