It’s getting out of hand
When a situation “is getting out of hand”, it is becoming harder and harder to control.
e.g. He started drinking only one pint of beer after work with his colleagues on Friday. But now, he drinks 3 or 4 pints of beer most evenings, and sometimes comes home drunk. It’s getting out of hand and I don’t know what to do about it.
This informal, common expression can be used in most situations in life including work, leisure, politics, and economics. You use the whole expression together:
situation (it) + get + out of hand. The verb “get” can take any tense
e.g. If we don’t stop our dogs barking at each other, pretty soon it will get out of hand and there will be a fight.
Can you create your own sentences with this expression? Good luck.
Thanks, Jennifer, Sudeep, and Filippo. Good example in particular from Jennifer - you've got the idea. "end up" goes well with "getting out of hand".
