Idiom – “can’t cut the mustard”

Definition:
This means one is not able to handle difficult or stressful situations.  It can also mean that one does not have sufficient experience or skills for the job.

Example:
Regional Manager – “I think your new assistant manager just can’t cut the mustard when it comes to dealing with employees and stressful situations.  You may have to let him go.”
