    Hi! I am learning the word" plague".
    My source says a plague of unpleasant things is a large number of them that arrive or happen at the same time.
    eg.a plague of rats.
    eg. a plague of robbery.
    Could you give me more examples about a plague of?
    Because I still can't use the phrase well.
    Thanks a lot!

    Re: plague

    If you disagree with both sides in a dispute or argument, you can say 'a plague on both your houses'.
