These idioms will not be the straw that breaks the camel's back... At least, it's what I hope for :)

Let's try: 
  1. to fall off the back of a lorry
  2. to be like chalk and cheese
  3. to be as ugly as sin
  4. to be on the safe side
  5. the straw that breaks the camel's back
Do you know any of these? If yes, great! If not, take a look at their meanings below:
  1. pochodzić z kradzieży
  2. całkowicie się różnić; być jak ogień i woda
  3. być brzydkim jak noc
  4. na wszelki wypadek
  5. kropla, która przepełnia czarę
And now a few examples:
  1. Have you ever bought anything that fell off the back of a lorry?
  2. My father and I are like chalk and cheese. We can't understand each other. :(
  3. Who thinks Jocelyn Wildenstein is as ugly as sin?
  4. Just to be on the safe side... read these idioms again :)
  5. I am wondering whether what I wrote him was the straw that breaks the camel's back...

And finally some HOMEWORK for you!
Please write here your own examples with these idioms! Let's talk!
