Throw in the Towel

“Throw in the towel”

How to Use It:
As an analyst, you don’t control much, but you do control the towel. When you’re completely fed up with a project just throw it in. That’ll really show ‘em.

Analyst: [Throws fifth towel of the day]
Associate: [Walks over to analyst bullpen, disregards pile of thrown towels, promptly pummels analyst with changes and updates]
