Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away:
Now it looks as though they’re here to stay.
Oh, I believe in yesterday.
This is the opening (as I remember it) of a song by Paul McCartney of the Beatles. The advice contained in it is not good as we cannot live in the past even when we used to be happier.
Not worth the trouble and more trouble than its worth both mean that the effort involved is more than the benefit.
Troubles never come singly is a saying. It never rains but it pours has a similar meaning.
Don’t go to a lot of trouble on my account is often said to a hostess by a guest. It is a polite expression not often taken seriously. A good hostess doesn’t mind a bit of extra work.
Trouble and strife can be synonyms for conflict, but together in rhyming slang they mean wife.
Here comes trouble is a greeting to a person arriving; it may or may not be a joke. She might be a wife!
If wrong has been done the perpetrator or miscreant is in trouble. The following expressions are punishments in verbal form:-
a dressing down, to tear someone off a strip, to give someone a ticking off, to wipe the floor with someone and to haul someone over the coals.
The first time I heard the expression to tear someone off a strip was on a bus journey as a child. It was a family outing and my parents asked the conductor for Rover tickets for the London country buses. These allowed us unlimited travel for a day. When we changed buses the next conductor examined our tickets, which were all joined together just how they came out of the machine, and joked, “Someone tore you off a strip!”
A telling off is a usual expression. All these expressions are about having the reasons why the actions were wrong explained and to make the offender feel ashamed.
In some areas there are local dialect versions. In North East England a child might ask, “Did you get wrong?” meaning, “Did you get into trouble?”
She bit my head off means that someone felt the sharp edge of another person’s tongue. It may have been out of temper or annoyance, not necessarily as a punishment.
In Matthew 6:25-34 Jesus taught his followers not to worry about the future. Verse 34 (NIV) Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. The link provides the context.
