Too much sugar for a dime

Posted by Cindy on June 29, 2008 at 19:48

And, another. "Too much sugar for a dime," which when used, means "a lot of trouble for very little return," or "too much of a bother to fool with." Again, a saying heard only in this part of the country--Southeast Texas. My husband says that I made this one up myself, but, I swear, I didn't and if I had, I wouldn't be posting this request. Any ideas? Thanks!
