    He tried to get a job but because of his age he was told he was over the hill.

    right up your street something that suits you, that you would find comfortable and easy.
    This job will be right up your street

    on the house free, at no charge
    The drinks are on the house
    off the beaten track away from it all, a remote or less familiar situation
    He lives miles away, off the beaten track
    in the same boat having a similar problem or being in the same situation We are all in the same boat but if we pull together we will solve the problem
