Be quite! Shut up!
Too rude?

These are some idioms that you can use to sound... well, polite.

  • Put a sock in it!
  • Cork it! - Keep quite!
  • Simmer down! - To someone who is angry
  • Wind your neck in! - To someone who gives a lot of opinions
  • Pipe down!
  • Button up! - Close your mouth!
  • Zip up!
Some of these don't sound polite, are they? But, you will sound smart if you use them in Malaysia. Well, because, we hardly use them.

Happy Wednesday!
