Hi Zhangbaixiang,

This expression
Quote:
By the time I get through with you
is used in a threatening way and suggests: When I have finished dealing with you/By the time I have finished telling you what I think of you/When I have finished telling you exactly what I think of you and telling you what you have done wrong ...

Hi Again,

Yesterday i've heard that thing; I'm not through with you yet.

Does it mean; I didn't finish my talking / blaming.

As there are two, going to tangle verbally .. blaming and dishing out each other. Like one of them says; Don't interrupt. Hear me out.

Sounds Right??

Yes, it means 'I haven't finished what I have to sat to you'.

'By the time I get down to you...' simply doesn't make any grammatical sense.
