1- Get in Someone’s hair (bother someone)

-Children! Would you please stop making so much noise! And for heaven’s sake, pick up your clothes and toys! It’s hard enough trying to keep this house clean without your throwing your things all over the place!
-Clara, I know that the children get in your hair, but you should try not to let it upset you so much.

2- Shoot Off One’s Mouth (express one’s opinions loudly)

-That’s it, Greg! You’d better not come in after midnight again tonight!

4- Pay Through the Nose (pay too high a price)

Since many other stamp collectors would also be bidding for it, he realized that he would have to pay through the nose in order to have it. After considering the increasing value of the stamp, he decided that he would not mind paying such a high price for something so rare.

5- Tongue-In Cheek (not serious)


-Why were you teasing Sonia about her new hairdo? She really took offense at what yousaid.
-I didn’t mean to offend her. I was simply making a tounge-in-check remark when I said that it was too elaborate for a girl of her young, tender age.
-Well, she thought you were serious. She had no idea that you were just saying that as a joke.
-I’m really sorry. I suppose I owe her an apology.

6- Pull Someone’s Leg (fool someone)
-Hey, Al. I was invited to be a judge for the Miss America Beauty Peagant!
-Oh, really? Come on, you’re pulling my leg!

-Well, you’ve told me foolish stories before.
-I can assure you that this one is for real.

7- Play It by Ear (improvise as one goes along)

-Let’s go to the movies, agreed?
-Sure. And what’ll we do after that?
-Oh, I don’t know. Let’s play by the ear.
-Well, I would like to have a more definite plan of action.
-Don’t be like that. It’s always more fun not knowing what to expect and deciding what to do as we go along.

8- Stick Out One’s Neck (take a risk)

-How come they’re asking me to act as their guide through the jungle?
-Evidently they think you’re teh only one who can lead them to the lost temple.
-That jungle has danger lurking around every corner. Why should I stick my neck out for them? They didn’t pay me for my services.
-They know that you would be taking a great risk and could possibly get hurt, but you’re the only one with enough knowladge to take them to their destination. I’m sure you’ll be amply rewarded.

9- Shake a Leg (hurry!)

10- All Thumbs (clumsy)
-Hey, Bea. Can you help me out? I don’t seem to be able to button up the back of my dress.
-Sure. Let’s see if I can do it for you.
-I guess I’m all thumbs because I’m so nervous. I’m already late for my date.
-Well, I suppose that being so nervous would make you clumsy and awkward. But don’t worry. I’m sure your date will wait.

11- Not Have a Leg to Stand On (to have no good defense for one’s opinions or actions)

Tom maintains that the firm owes him some back wages for having worked overtime.

12- Get Off Someone’s Back (stop bothering someone)

-Look! Get off my back! I can’t go anywhere!
-OK. I’ll stop bothering you only if you promise to let me know the minute you’re finished.
