pussyfoot - A real word, as you surely know. "pusɪfut v. 1 sneak, creep, slink, prowl, steal, tiptoe: I wish she'd stop pussyfooting about the house. 2 beat about the bush, hem or hum and haw, equivocate, hesitate, be evasive, evade the issue, prevaricate, tergiversate, be noncommittal, be or sit on the fence, blow hot and cold: Don't pussyfoot with me -- just come out and say what you really think."

e.g., No matter what the circumstances, I've never been one to pussyfoot around. Has it ever caused me any problems? Damned right it has. But I doubt that I'd change a thing if I had it to do over -- other than, perhaps, try not to get myself in the circumstances where my not pussyfooting around got me in trouble.

put paid - Bonafide, real idiom, put paid to: "To deal with effectively; to finish something off." I usually think of it as bringing something to an end: put paid to the notion that.…" I'm almost certain I frequently see the phrase without the trailing "to," hence this entry. The Phrase Finder: "To deal with effectively; to finish something off." "Put paid to" has the sense of disabusing people of any notion that they will be able to continue doing what they have been doing.

e.g., Of Dick Fuld: "Along the way, he made his staff both wealthy and happy: until yesterday, morale at Lehman Brothers was high – even though the immaculately groomed Mr Fuld’s withering looks put paid to the bank’s dress-down Friday tradition. " | He put paid to the notion that anyone would get a pay increase until profits improved. |    Chief Justice Earl Warren wrote the 1958 opinion in Trop v. Dulles that put paid the notion that citizens, natural-born or naturalized, could be penalized by stripping them of their citizenship involuntarily.    Even after Trop v. Dulles, citizens could be stripped of their citizenship involuntarily -- but not as a penalty. I guess it must have depended on what the meaning of "penalty" was. (I'm not sure if such involuntary stripping remains in effect; however, I'm sure naturalized citizens can be denaturalized if they are found to have gained their citizenship through fraudulent means. It may not happen often, but it's legal to do so.)

put the boot in - What Australians call "kicking a man when he's down." Sometimes literal, sometimes figurative. Literal in the example.

e.g., When Shawn started putting the boot in, the guy tried to crawl under a pool table for protection.   Fellow sued me for almost $15,000 for his medical expenses, including some rebuilding of his face from the kicking he took. My lawyer got rid of him in a hurry. He had volunteered to be in the fight, coming all the way across the bar (about 100 feet) to get into a fight -- because he wanted to make an impression on me so I would hire him as bouncer. Idiot. He didn't realize who he was messing with. The meanest bunch of thugs in town.
