    Default Looking for idiom meaning to lose a tail

    Hey guys,

    I'm not totally sure, but I thought there was an idiom meaning to lose a tail (like a car following you). Does anyone have an idea which idiom I'm talking about? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!

    --Stephen

    Default not a teacher

    You shake a tail. Or you shake off someone that's following you.
