Get rid of someone


Get rid of usually means to “eliminate” someone or something. In this specific case “get rid of” means that you don’t want to spend time with someone, perhaps because you simply want to be alone or that person irritates you. You exclude someone from what you are doing. You want them to go away.

1. It is not easy to get rid of telemarketers when they call you to promote or sell something, especially when they are persistent.

2. When you can’t get rid of someone who irritates you, you need to put up with (tolerate) them. Many people have a coworker/ colleague they would like to get rid of especially when they are busy, maybe because they talk too much or take up a lot of their time.

3. If you want to get rid of someone on Facebook because you don’t want to see what they post, the best way to do this is to “hide” their feed. It’s not necessary to delete them as a friend.

4. The quickest way to get rid of a beggar who approaches you is to give them some money.

5. Usually women know how to get rid of a guy who is flirting with them and who they are not interested in.
