"The last straw" nghĩa là gì?

'The last/final straw', the straw that breaks the camel's back = cọng rơm cuối cùng (làm gãy lưng lạc đà) -> nghĩa là sự kiện làm cho tình hình chung càng thêm tồi tệ (the last in a series of unpleasant events that finally makes you feel that you cannot continue to accept a bad situation); giọt nước tràn ly.

Ví dụ
Cable problem during SU football game was last straw.

Kavanaugh hearings may have been the last straw for Nikki Haley.

Guthrie's morale boost fail was last straw for miserable ABC staff.

In the big picture, this is probably the last straw. Minnesota had been patient up until now, as they should have been. With the events that transpired today, along with whatever Butler says during his interview on ESPN tonight, a trade needs to happen as soon as possible. His performance today may have inspired some of the players, but the way he attacked the two franchise cornerstones cannot be a good thing for this team.
