Couple of meanings here:

1 "I am chuffed": I am pleased... also has slight overtones of pride,
in many cases. It'd usually be used in instances where the speaker's pleased
with something that benefitted themselves, or by something they did.

2 "Sorry, I've chuffed": to chuff can also mean to fart.

Isn't language rich and amazing etc etc.
