  2. Stretching the truth
  3. Wading through paperwork
  4. Dodging deadlines
  5. Picking up the pieces
  6. Jumping to conclusion
  7. Going over the edge
  8. Starting the ball rolling
  9. Adding fuel to the fire
  10. Pulling out all the stops
  11. Pushing their luck
  12. Passing the buck
  13. Tooting their own horns
  14. Bending the rules
  15. Pulling strings
  16. Balancing the books
  17. Jumping on the bandwagon
  18. Flying off the handle
  19. Running around in circles
  20. Climbing the walls
  21. Dragging their heels
  22. Beating around the bush
  23. Throwing their weight around
  24. Making mountains out of molehills
  25. Opening a can of worms
  26. Putting their foot in their mouth
  27. Spinning their wheels
  28. Jogging their memory
  29. Climbing the ladder
  30. Dodging responsibilities
