Even though Linda had so mu景觀設計ch to do, her partner did not show up for work. Now she had even more work! This was the last straw! The full version of this phrase is “the last straw which breaks the camel's back.” Straw in this sentence means something horses eat (similar to hay). Think of a camel pulling a cart of straw and then their master adds one more straw, e-nough to break its back. That being said, the phrase means a small addition which makes the entirety of one's difficulties unbearable. In the example, Linda al-ready had a lot on her plate so her coworker being ab-sent made a lot of work be-come too much work for her.
