Idiom of the Day
“The last straw”

This means that you have endured

many hardships, but this last situation is the final act to make you lose your patience. You have had enough, and now you are about to let your real feelings out.

“Tanaka has been late several times this month, and has not turned in his paperwork on an important business deal. Today he came into work drunk. That is the last straw. Bring Tanaka to my office. He is about to be fired!”

    @Won good correction - I was typing in the mistake here, but you went back and corrected it. Very well done. I know that “R” sounds are difficult for Asians to say. Yours are understandable, especially the way you pronounced “drunk.” Keep up the good work!
