    Re: Idioms

    Welcome to the forums.

    To blow something out of all proportion >> to make it seem far more important than it really is. Another idiom that says this is to make a mountain out of a molehill.

    Push someone over the edge >> to irritate or infuriate someone so much that they lose their temper.

    To get in someone's hair >> to be irritating to someone.
