Hi Rammel
Burn the midnight oil

I  used that as others did when on the night shift.

It was meant to mean before electric lighting.

Hi Rammel
Cross that bridge when you come to it

Used to deal with a problem if and when it becomes necessary, not before.

Hi Rammel
Don't give up the day job

Said when we  are not very good at something.

Basically because we could definitely not do it professionally.

Hi Rammel
Butter Someone Up

Usually when we flatter someone

Looked to see if any history about the saying, I found this

An ancient Indian custom involved throwing balls of clarified butter at statues of the gods to seek favour.

Hi Rammel
The short end of the stick

In getting the short end of the stick, is when we  come off worst in a bargain or contest.
