Idiom : ‎”I WOULDN’T TRUST THEM AS FAR AS I COULD THROW THEM”


“I WOULDN’T TRUST THEM AS FAR AS I COULD THROW THEM”!

This means you have a strong distrust of someone.

EXAMPLE: “What do you think of your sister’s boyfriend? Do you like him?”
ANSWER: “No! He’s a snake and I wouldn’t trust him as far as I could throw him! He cheated on my sister with another girl last New Year’s Eve! I don’t know why she’s still dating him!”

All the best,  Cindy
