First, a good idiom came up in class this week: the last straw. Or sometimes we say "the straw that broke the camel's back". It means a small thing added to many other small things before it which suddenly becomes too much.
I put up with my friend's bad behaviour for years, but when he broke my favourite CD, that was the last straw. I don't talk to him anymore.
