    The last straw is something that made the problem impossible to endure it anymore.
    'Even I wouldn't have stood for it.' - Even I wouldn't be able to bear/cope with it. That's just too much. Another way of saying this: Even I wouldn't put up with it.

    That's the last straw for men. Have a look at this link, it gives you the origin of the idiom. Straw that broke the camel's back - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
