    let (someone or something) be
    : to not bother or touch (someone or something)
    ▪ Please let [=leave] me be.


    leave somebody/something be
    let somebody/something be
    to leave sb/sth alone without disturbing them or it: Leave her be, she obviously doesnít want to talk about it. Let the poor dog be (= donít annoy it).

    fair enough
    informal —used to say that something is reasonable or fair
    ▪ “I'll wash the dishes today, and you can wash them tomorrow.” “Fair enough.”
    ▪ “He needs more time.” “Fair enough, but we can't wait too much longer.”

    ------------------------

    fair enough (informal, especially BrE) used to say that an idea or suggestion seems reasonable: ‘We’ll meet at 8.’ ‘Fair enough.’ If you don’t want to come, fair enough, but let Bill know.

    ----------------------------

    fair enough
    especially British English
    used to say that you agree with someone's suggestion or that something seems reasonable [= OK]:
    'I think we should split the bill.' 'Fair enough.'
