    quick question - one idiom issue

    Hi guys,

    There is a certain English idiom that decribes a situation when someone complains to wrong person - they still weep on wrong grave(?)

    ????

    I knew it but slipped my mind. Help me crack this issue.

    Thank you

    jirikoo

    one idiom issue

    hello,

    suggest me or sort out mine problem is that right :-

    Stupid is as stupid does.

    A line from the movie Forrest Gump.

    I don't know what that means. Does it have a meaning or is it just a nonsensical phrase?

    thanks !!
