    About ~やがる

    やがる is a colloquial usage of the auxiliary verb ()がる 'to go up' or 'to be complete' that can be attached to the conjunctive form of verbs and will often be translated as 'to have the nerve to (A)', or 'to have the gall to do (A)'. It is primarily used by men in response to actions performed by others that bring about feelings of scorn or disdain.

    Alternatively, やがる may also be attached to the て-form of verbs, which is simply an abbreviation of ている + あがる as an auxiliary verb once again. The meaning however will be the same.
