Mafia idiom of the day. DIG ONE’S OWN GRAVE


Meaning: when you dig your own grave, you make an action that results bad consequences for you in future.

For example:

  • In our mafia Family we have an unspoken tradition: if somebody comes late to our closed meeting we kill that person for the 1st night in an upcoming game. So you dig your own grave on a constant basis by coming late all the time.
