    At a point when or if all else has been taken into account and matters must be confronted, one way or another.

    Hello Justka283 ,

    Welcome to the forum!

    First, let me correct your question's grammar:
    I would like to know what this idiom means:
    "When push comes to shove".

    I found a great outside source for idiomatic expressions here.

    It basically means "when a decision must be made. . ." or "when one has run out of 'thinking time' and must act on the situation".

    I hope this helps you!

    SMiles,
