Be in the doghouse (Short video)

The phrase of the day is: "Be in the doghouse"

  • In a situation of being the object of someone's anger or disapproval.
    [ --- I'm in the doghouse - I broke Sara's favourite vase this morning. --- ]
  • To be \"\"in the doghouse with X\"\" usually means that X is angry at you
    [ --- I seem to be in the doghouse with her but I don't know why. --- ]
  • You can use it in this form, too: \"\"in someone's doghouse\"\"
    [ --- I'm in my wife's doghouse for forgetting Valentine's Day. --- ]
