    Put a bug in someone's ear

    When first used in English, the term put a flea in someone's ear was used to mean a feeling of spiritual emotion. The idiom evolved into the current meaning of a strong reprimand. To put a bug in someone's ear means to give him a suggestion or a hint, to impart some information that will help decide a course of action.

    Apprehension or doubt strong enough to prevent a planned course of action. A loss or lack of courage or confidence; an onset of uncertainty or fear. To “have cold feet” is to be too fearful to undertake or complete an action. A wave of timidity or fearfulness.
    Cold feet - in German "kalte Füsse" means got kicked off by his GF

    Except it doesn't. it means the same as in English - to become insecure about something and then not do it.

    Maybe in your region, if you're German

    Hit the nail on the head

    No one knows the exact origin of this phrase. What is known is that it is extremely old. It appears in The Book of Margery Kempe, circa 1438. This was an account of the life of religious visionary Margery Kempe and is considered to be the earliest surviving autobiography written in English:
    "Yyf I here any mor thes materys rehersyd, I xal so smytyn ye nayl on ye hed that it schal schamyn alle hyr mayntenowrys."
    In modernised English, that reads as:
    "If I hear any more these matters repeated, I shall so smite the nail on the head that it shall shame all her supporters."

    It's definitely a screw and not a nail.
