This guy looked like he thought we had no business walking on his street. I should have explained in my best French that it's also mine... But that would have been being catty, non? LOL.
In French, they say, "Il n'y a pas de quoi fouetter un chat," which literally means, "There is nothing (to use) to whip a cat."
But the expression means, "It's nothing to make a fuss about."
