    hear the last of it

    Hi

    A little girl says:

    They (other pupils at school) are always on at me for being clumsy, and if they knew Id gone and got my fingers in the mangle, theyd never let me hear the last of it.

    Does it mean they would never stop talking about it?

    Re: hear the last of it

    Yes. It would never be forgotten. It would always be there to be brought up in conversation.

    "Never hear the end of it" would be how i would say it.
