The last straw
As far as Alex was concerned this was the last straw and he vowed he would never risk money on a horse ever again.
Does this phrase mean 'the final decision' or 'the final occasion'?
Thank you for help.
Re: The last straw
The final/last straw (ALSO the straw that breaks the camel's back):
the last in a series of unpleasant events which finally makes you feel that you cannot continue to accept a bad situation - Cambridge Dictionaries.
It is useful. Thank you, the French.
