I want to say that I have had enough, put my foot down.

It's time to put my foot down, do not start again.

I am putting my foot down, on the unannounced visits.

It is time to put my foot down, with the needless interruptions.

    maybe add some example sentences? – Igor Skochinsky Jul 22 '18 at 19:30
  • Examples have been added, per request. – Jack Bosma Jul 22 '18 at 19:34
  • What is your attempt at translation? – ajsmart Jul 23 '18 at 2:02
  • Jack, what Igor meant was that normally your questions show that you tried to make such a sentence in Japanese on your own, but that you want someone to double check or correct them... In this question though, you're simply asking for translation help, which is contrary to the goals of the website. – ericfromabeno Jul 23 '18 at 3:03

You can say:





  • but would you actually say these things to the person you're speaking to as part of your insistence that something never happen again? For example, would you include these words in a sentence when speaking to your husband/wife/boyfriend/girlfriend, about their friends coming to visit unannounced, or about being interrupted? Also I think Jack was asking, is there a common Japanese idiom similar to "put my foot down"? – ericfromabeno Jul 23 '18 at 3:07
