Idiom – Keep one’s pants on
Keep one’s pants on/ Keep one’s shirt on – Держать себя в руках / Сохранять спокойствие
|Hey, guys, keep your pants on when your girl friend is so pretty that she draws attention. |
I remember the day when my boyfriend could not keep his shirt on and punched the bloke who just winked at me.
I pleaded him to keep his pants on but he wouldn’t. No please to calm down helped. That guy’s eye swelled up. Someone called the police. What if I had winked back at him?
Keep smth in your pants – Держать что-то при себе
|Just leave it there. Don’t take it out. The phone has become the third hand for us. Keep it in your pants. |
You do not need it, flashing and beeping, trying to yank your attention away from someone a foot away who is trying to tell you a funny story with no desire to watch you poking in the telephone.
