  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Idioms 221. The idiom today is to take someone

  • to the cleaners. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. If someone takes

  • another person to the cleaners, he or she takes someone's money or possessions in

  • a dishonest or unfair way or at least that's the way we feel about it.

  • It probably alludes to the idea that you know , like you yes when you take your

  • clothes to the cleaners they got to clean out your pockets. So they probably are

  • taking all your money or possessions. If you left anything there you shouldn't.

  • All right but anyway let's let's continue here. Example number one. His wife hired a

  • good lawyer or his ex-wife hired a good lawyer and she really took him to the

  • cleaners. She got the house the car and most of the valuables , and he still has

  • to pay her alimony. So this would be a typical way that we might say it . You

  • often hear this like with divorces. Maybe if the wife gets a good lawyer, she took the

  • husband to the cleaners. So he really you know, he didn't end up with much. She was

  • lucky she got most of it. Okay. Let's look at number two. That con artist

  • took this company to the cleaners. He pretended to fall and injure himself in

  • one of their stores and sued them for a fortune. So of course , this is illegal.

  • This goes under you know, insurance fraud, basically, but it does happen. Sometimes

  • we hear about this and you know, so he pretended to get hurt. And he took the

  • company took the cleaners. He sued them for a lot of money. All right. So this is

  • typically the way we hear it used. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's clear.

  • Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
