'Odwalam się' - few questions

My research leads me to believe that this means 'piss off', but I want to know if there are alternative uses of this phrase? What does it literally mean? It's a 1st person reflexive right? Is the verb used in 2nd/3rd person ever? What's the infinitive? etc.. etc... all information would be appreciated.

it sounds more like ' I'm pissing off ' haha, though its not correct in english. I cant remember if I've ever heard such phrase. I think it translates as ' i'm gone ' as a response to 'piss off'

piss off is odwal się.

Piss off! = Spierdalaj!
Slightly less offensive would be "spierniczaj" or "spieprzaj" and least offensive: "odwal się", "spadaj", "zjeżdżaj", "spływaj", "zwiewaj" or "zmykaj" but this is in 1st person meaning "I'm Outta Here!" same as "zmykam", "spływam", "zwiewam".

What's the infinitive?

odwalić perf or odwalać imperf

Is the verb used in 2nd/3rd person ever?

Ja odwalam, ty odwalasz, on odwala, ona odwala, my odwalamy, wy odwalacie, oni odwalają

What does it literally mean?

to remove, to roll aside but also colloquially to hurddle over a job. If you add reflexive się it will mean get out or beat it
