Idiom of the Day

“More than I bargained for”

I am sure in your

life you have had a situation where your perceptions or expectations did not meet reality. Maybe you went on a date with someone that you thought would be a great person, only to find out they had many personal problems. Or you got hired for a job that you thought would be great, only to have a lot of extra duties that the manager never mentioned. In these cases, you got “more than you bargained for.” This idiom shares how overwhelmed you are, and that you may have regrets or want to take back your decision.

    @Tom Thank you for sharing! I enjoy learning information like this from other countries and cultures. It shows that we are all similar even if we are thousands of KM apart.

    @Jennifer Blossom I have never heard of this..! What does it mean? Here in the US, if you have yellow wall paper, it usually means the person in that house is a smoker.

    @Scott Cecil Allen I just heard it in an American Tv show, the character said to his friend: you haven't gone full yellow wall paper on me yet,have you?.... and I don't know what does it mean
