81. Ρίχνω λάδι…στη φωτιά!

Στην ουσία ‘ρίχνω λάδι στη φωτιά’ σημαίνει ‘οξύνω τα πράγματα‘ δηλαδή λέγοντας κάτι ή κάνοντας κάτι χειροτερεύω μία κατάσταση ή στην αγγλική , make a problem worse.

Οι αγγλόφωνοι τι λένε;

Παράδειγμα:

-I am already angry with you; by shouting at me you add fuel to the fire!

-By not apologising to me, you add fuel to the fire!
