    Default lie down

    Could you give me an example sentence, using "lie down"
    (meaning: evade, fail to do) as an inseparable transitive verb?

    Default Re: lie down

    What about?

    lie down
    to yield to

    Ex: Never take any attack lying down.


    lie down on the job
    to not work as hard at something as you should.

    Ex: The new Police Chief fired two officers he accused of lying down on the job.
