    Like turkeys voting for (an early) Christmas = υπογράφω την καταδίκη μου, ανοίγω μόνος μου τον τάφο μου, πηγαίνω σαν πρόβατο επί σφαγή

    We're like turkeys voting for Christmas - if there was a poll tomorrow we would vote for the same people.

    The idea that drivers would choose to have speed limiters in their cars would be like turkeys voting for Christmas.

    Ψontrolling the members of this expedition is like herding cats.

    Φρονώ πως απόδοση στο ίδιο ρέτζιστερ είναι το: «ο κόσμος να χαλάσει».

    wouldn't say boo to a goose = φοβάμαι να ανοίξω το στόμα μου

    If you remember, at college I wouldn't say boo to a goose.' — `That's right, you were very quiet.' She recalled a shy, overweight girl who wouldn't say boo to a goose.

    Eγώ αυτό το καταλάβαινα πάντα να σημαίνει ότι κάποιος είναι πολύ ντροπαλός.

    Αυτό σημαίνει το «φοβάμαι να ανοίξω το στόμα μου».
    Άλλο πληροφορία, άλλο γνώση· άλλο βία, άλλο δύναμη.

    (have) salt shakers at the ready κράτα μικρό καλάθι

    Examples:
    Even so, we'd urge you to keep salt shakers at the ready for this one until we hear more solid announcements from Microsoft.
    I'm not saying that to crush anyone's hopes, just saying I hope you have some salt shakers at the ready.
    Of course, as you read through these rumors, make sure to keep your salt shakers at the ready, as these rumors could have little or no truth to them.
    Make sure you have your salt shakers at the ready, folks, because we're about to delve into some heavy rumour territory.

    for what it's worth = κατά την ταπεινή μου άποψη, με κάθε επιφύλαξη, αν και η γνώμη μου μπορεί να μην έχει ιδιαίτερη αξία/σημασία, δεν ξέρω αν σε παρηγορεί/σε βοηθάει αυτό που θα σου πω, αν έχει κάποια σημασία, ό,τι κι αν σημαίνει αυτό, όλως πληροφοριακά, η γνώμη μου είναι κλπ.

    For what it's worth, I don't think your dad meant to insult you.

    For what it's worth, I think you should confront your boss if you're unhappy with how he's treating you.
