Idiom of the day – To be in the doghouse

If you are in the doghouse, you have done something wrong and somebody is angry with you. Your status at home or at work or at school is reduced to a low level – like when your dog misbehaves and you send him to his kennel or doghouse to think about his mistakes. To exit this unfortunate state you may well need to apologize to the person you upset and in exceptional circumstances this may even involve the buying of flowers and/or chocolates. 🌹🌹🍫🍫
