Did you give them an inch and they took a mile?

Ponieważ dzisiaj ma miejsce XX finał WOŚP i sprawa dotyczy 'dawania', więc i dzisiejszy idiom, też z użyciem słowa 'give'. Tak jak w pytaniu tytułowym: Czy dałeś komuś palec, a ten ktoś wziął całą rękę? Podstawowa forma idiomu brzmi "to give sb an inch and sb will take a mile". Tell us about those situations when you gave someone an inch and they took a mile... I remember mine... Some time ago when I agreed to postpone a test once, the group decided to ask me to put off further tests each time they were supposed to have that test. I guess it is a very good example of a situation when I gave them an inch and they wanted to take a mile. What about you?
