    welcome dendukuru
    To begin with, you have to know all meanings of the idiom.
    If someone is 'at the bottom of the totem pole' s/he is unimportant.
    Opposite is 'at the top of the totem pole'.
    I met these idioms used for situations.
    Using idioms may be difficult.
    S.M.

    If you have no idea how to use the idioms of a language, you know nothing about how to use the language.
