Food

A: The food has gone bad. We should order takeout.

B: That’s a good idea.

- Is there an alternative to say instead of “the food has gone bad” in this case?

Thanks very much!

Take business elsewhere

"Don't take cash? I'll take my business elsewhere."

- Hi guys! "I'll take my business elsewhere" means "to go to another place to do business". Is this sentence applied to "hospitals, museums, theatres, bookstores, restaurants, tailor shops, hotels"?

Thanks very much!

A customer

What word do you use to call a customer who has been buying drinks or food or staying at a restaurant, a pub, a shop or a hotel for almost 20 years?

Your answers will be greatly appreciated.

Fly around / cut someone off

A: What Interesting Car Did You See on the Road Today? B: I saw a newer C63 AMG while I was heading home from work ...interestingly enough the person was driving 30 in a 45mph and people were getting pissed off and flying around him cutting him off.

Easy-peasy

Hi everyone! I read a page of a book. The writer wrote that one of 25 ways to praise a student is " Easy-peasy ". I Googled the meaning and it means "extremely easy".
