How do you identify the line between "getting on someone's nerves" and getting someone "ticked off"? To me, those are identical. Getting on someone's nerves = annoying them = ticking them off. Is getting on their nerves not a negative feeling in your definition?
Getting on someone's nerves means you're annoying them. Ticking someone off means you've made them angry. At least, that's the distinction I've always made.
