I have a few idiomatic expressions I'm wondering about. What does it mean:
To cost the earth
To run the gaunlet
And also what does "and Bob's your uncle" mean?
Wow! That was fast. Thank you very much
One more thing. If I want to put rubber neck in a sentense. Could I say that "someone is rubber necking something"?
I hear rubber-necking use dmost often in relation to traffic accidents.
Rubber-neckers are people who slow down and try to see what has happened and whether or not anyone is injured or dead.
Look! There's been a car crash over there!
Well, the police are dealing with it now, so stop rubber-necking and keep driving.
The traffic was quite slow at the scene of the accident, not because the road was blocked, but because rubber-neckers were slowing their cars to look at the scene.
