Someone who has a chip on his shoulder is angry all the time. They feel that they have been wronged by the world, so they are always ready for a fight. They are easily offended because they feel that they have been treated unfairly by others, or perhaps they feel inferior. They expect trouble, so they are always ready for it.

It can also mean that the person has a grievance about something. Something bad has happened to him, and he might believe it was someone else’s fault. This kind of person is constantly angry about it that it affects his behaviour. In the person’s mind, he is showing how tough he is.

You can also use have got. You can also add adjectives to describe the size of the chip.
"To Have a Chip on One's Shoulder" - Examples:
I can’t stand working with Bill; he’s got such a massive chip on his shoulder. He’s so unpleasant.
…Keira Knightley has admitted that forsaking university in favour of a film career has left her with a “chip on her shoulder” over her lack of education. . . . She now battles to prove to herself – and those around her – that she has brains.
Excerpt from The Telegraph - U.K.
Success never made that chip on his shoulder go away.

CHiPs was a cop show that aired from 1977-1983, about the lives of two CHP Motor Cycle officers. It staring Erik Estrada as the cool but accident prone Frank "Ponch" Poncherello and Larry Wilcox as his calm level headed partner Jon Baker. Robert Pine also starred as the no nonsense but kind hearted Sergeant Joseph Getraer. Plots usually revolved around chasing out of control drivers, saving peoples lives in car crashes, and going after burglars. But there was also sub plots involving the Officers social lives and SoCal lifestyle.

Opening scenes featured the actual California Highway Patrol building, located under the Santa Monica Freeway in down town L.A. The theme song and Crash scenes were filmed around the valley on unopened streches of Freeways.

A made for TV movie came out in '98 called CHiPs '99, starring many of the original cast members.
CHiPs is probably one of the best shows ever. Motor cycles, car crashes, hot chicks, cool scenary, what more could ya ask for. Can't wait for season 3 to be released on DVD.
