    Cool oars


    Is the following expression correct?

    "don't stick your oar in" meaning: "mind your own business"

    Re: oars


    put/stick oar in - Idioms - by the Free Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    put/stick your oar in (British & Australian, informal)
    to involve yourself in a discussion or a situation when other people do not want you to.

    Ex: I don't want Janet coming to the meeting and sticking her oar in - she knows nothing about the situation.
