Is this sentence right?
She's always slagging off her friends. She should stop behaving like that. Her friends won't forgive her unless she gets it acted out.
(I want to say they won't forgive her unless she shows it in practice and her behaviour,...) (any other phrase meaning the same?)
Thanks a lot dear emsr2d2,
But, what, when Sb promises to change Sth about their behaviour, we can't make sure until we see the change in their behaviour (a physical change, sth touchable, or sth we can see in their behaviour). What I'm looking for might be the second part of "all mouth and no trousers"! Can I say, to get it acted out?
'... unless she starts to practise what she preaches'?
If she constantly said that being nice was something everyone should do, but then she herself did the opposite, I would agree that this would be the perfect phrase.
Yes, I see your point.
After the Rochdale incident, she could be described as 'doing a Gordon' (BBC News - Gordon Brown 'bigoted woman' comment caught on tape )
NOTE: this is a joke; there is no such idiom (as far as I know).
Perhaps this would do: 'unless she stops being such a hypocrite/so two-faced...'. Of course, depending on the degree of formality, the latter provides lots of scope for vitriolic variations, along the lines of 'being such a two-faced b****'.
Hi and thanks to you...
Could I just say "till she practises what she says"? Here, what she said was a promise. Thanks.
If at some point in the passage she has in fact promised to change her behaviour, then you can say that her friends won't forgive her until she "makes good on her promise".

Furthermore, I cannot understand your way of acting...
Please don't see it as an insult.
