    *Not a teacher

    Tricking him/ fooling him/ getting rid of him was way too easy.

    I wouldn't read it as your first two options. I'd go with "getting rid of him".

    I like all of the examples given so far.

    That
    refers to doing something that you thought would be difficult to do:


    • Convincing your brother to loan you his car...
    • Your mid-term exam...
    • Passing through Airport Customs...
    • Changing the baby's diaper...
    • Getting someone off the phone...
