    Over my head

    Much grateful if you could tell me what the following sentence means:
    "I was in way over my head."

    Thanks.

    way over my head - definition of way over my head

    Hello, Deepurple:


    (1) "Don't ask me to explain English grammar. That is way over

    my head." = It is too difficult for me to understand.

    (2) "Tom is the manager of a big company, but he is in way over

    his head." = He doesn't know how to run a company. The only reason

    that he is manager is that his father owns the company.

    (3) Here in the United States, we also have this saying:

    Our new manager is young, beautiful, and speaks in a very

    beautiful manner. But she doesn't have a clue. She does not know

    what she is doing. The only reason that she is manager is that her

    boyfriend owns the company.
