And now, I’d like to introduce a new segment called “That’s not it.”

Sometimes, Coleman says weird things. In particular, he really likes to use cliches. Unfortunately, he frequently gets the cliches wrong. Thus, this segment.

Today’s cliche?

Coworker: Why don’t they just decide?

Coleman: I don’t know.

Coworker: Have you tried to sell them on such-and-such point?

Coleman: I have, but they just won’t commit. It’s like pulling at strings!

In this situation, I believe the cliche he was looking for was:

“Grasping at straws”

Grasping at straws.
