Let's not blow the problem out of proportion. If we break it down, we'll see that it is really not that complicated.
Max told Mary that he was sorry, but she didn't buy it.
We've done enough work today. Let's call it a day.
I'm tired. I'm going to have to call it a night.
You save my life five years ago, and I saved your life just now. Let's call it even.
I think everyone is very tired right now; let's call it quits for now. Let's try again tomorrow.
Max couldn't tell Mary the truth. He knew it would open a can of worms.
I'll be gone for a couple weeks. I'm sure you can carry on without me.
Max took a little extra time to catch on, but eventually he understood the situation.
I know I said that I wanted vanilla, but I changed my mind; I want chocolate.
John asked for a divorce when he found out that Mary was cheating on him.
Nice try. Close but no cigar. Guess again.
Max quit smoking cigarettes cold turkey.
Max really crossed the line when he ate Mary's last donut.
Cut Max some slack. He didn't mean to be rude. He just had a very difficult day.
Let me cut to the chase. I quit. As of tomorrow, I no longer work here.
I've had enough of the daily grind. I hope I win the lottery soon.
My job seems to be at a dead end.
Max's boss seems to be a very evil person, but deep down he's not that bad.
The storm seems to be dying down. Maybe we'll be able to play tennis tomorrow after all.
