Attention non-American writers - are there American sayings or idioms you don't understand?


Please list them. If I get enough responses, I will write a Hub explaining various common sayings in America that might make absolutely no sense to non-native speakers. Could be a fun exercise - thanks!

    Sweetzara I was born here 33 years ago and the only one I think I understand is know your onions because they have layers. I relate that to people- get to know people because they all have layers, issues, different experiences. I may be wrong.
