Bang your head against a brick wall!
Teddy: Have you finished your big project yet?
Paul: No. I'm waiting for some information from my colleague. I've sent him emails, phoned him and even gone to see him, but he's still not finished. I'm banging my head against a brick wall!
Banging my head against a brick wall or Banging my head against the wall - this English idiom means that you continually being frustrated by something. You have been trying to find a solution for something or get someone to do something for you but you are getting nowhere.
Happened to me in trying to save a piece for one of your topics...
copied but could not paste, very much banging my head in this instance :?
Computers must be of one the biggest causes of this type of frustration. You are not alone! I've spent days trying to fix laptops - only to end up back where I started. :(
oh, I am sorry to know that your laptops needs to be fixed Teacher, I was even in that situation also, that was banging my head against the wall perfectly!
then how about the condition of your laptop now Teacher, has it been already fixed?
And I have got problem on network configuration for any airlines user recently, not all people know how the configuration is, neither I am perfectly. >,>
I bought a new laptop. My old one passed away in the end. :(
Your problem sounds very complicated! I wouldn't know where to start...
I also bought a new laptop, mine too passed away few days ago. :( and by the way, I lost many pictures.
That's the worst that can happen Coco. :(
I always make sure I back-up my photos. Perhaps you should buy an external hard drive?
Yes, that is the worst that can happen. I bought a memory card.
It happens to me often to bang my head against a brick wall, and it hurt my head... hehhehe... (It is a joke.)
It would hurt! Don't try this at home. :)
Right, Teacher. :)
We also have this selfsame idiom in Arabic with the same meaning.
That's very interesting Amal. :)
