Horse of a different color

quiet a different matter.

Eric likes to play jokes on his friends, but he makes sure that nobody is hurt by any of his pranks.
A prank that hurts someone is a horse of a different color!
Being playful is one thing, but hurting someone by one's prank is quite a different matter.

Get in Someone's Hair

bother someone

- Children.! Would you please stop making so much. noise! And for heaven's sake, pick up your clothes and toys!
It's hard enough trying to keep this house clean without your throwing your things all over the place!
- Clara, I know that the children get in your hair, but you should try not to let it upset you so much.
- Listen, Jim. I can't help it. The children bother me and make me very angry when they're so noisy and messy.

Shoot off one's moth

express one's opinions loudly

Jim doesn't play tennis very much, but he's always shooting off his mouth about how good he is.
Yet he's fooling nobody.
Jim is somewhat of a braggart and everyone knows that he gives opinions without knowing all the facts and talks as if he knew everything about the game.

Play It by Ear

improvise as one goes along

Let's go to the movies, agreed?
Sure. And what'll we do after that?
Oh, I don't know. Let's play it by ear.
Well, I would like to have a more definite plan of action.
Don't be like that. It's always more fun not knowing what to expect and deciding what to do as we go along.

stop bothering someone

Hey, John. I'm bored. Come on, let's go out and do something.
Sorry, I'm right in the middle of studying for a physics exam. I won't be able to make it tonight.
You've been studying for a long time. Why don't you take a break? Come on, Let's go. Forget studying for a while.
Look! Get off my back! I can't go anywhere!
OK, I'll stop bothering you only if you promise to let me know the minute you're finished.

People who Live in Glass Houses Shouldn't Throw Stones

one should not criticize when one is equally at fault

Janet has often criticized her friend.
Lois for driving too fast, yet she herself has had her license suspended for exceeding the speed limit.
Lois once tried to tell her that people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones, but it didn't do much good.
Janet simply didn't accept the fact that she should not pass judgment on other people when she is just as bad as they are.
