This week’s Idiom of the Week is “An Axe to Grind”; this idiom is one of my favourites and I use it when I am at work. It seems I use it more with the adults than with the children.
The meaning of “An axe to grind” is to have something to complain about.
Tom, I need to talk to you. I have an ax to grind.
Bill and Bob went into the other room to argue. They had an axe to grind.
