Idiom does NOT mean ‘idioma’ in Spanish.

Idioms are popular expressions of common usage that have a particular or several meanings. Read the following Story and try to define the idioms in bold by contextual inference:

Whenever my sister has an exam, she gets very stressed out; I always tell her to get a grip and that it is important for her to control her emotions if she wants to do great in her exam. She replies, “Come on! you know how anxious I get Johny.” To which I replied, “I know sis’, but you can’t go around taking it out on other people like that.” “you know you hurt other people’s feelings when you treat them that way, don’t you?”

“You’re right bro’” she said. “I’ll be sure to get a grip of myself and keep calm.”

Please try to provide the definitions for these idioms without looking at a dictionary, use the context of the whole text as a guide:



Get a grip!

Come one! 

Take it out on.
