Stepped on a rake

Posted by Patty on October 29, 2001

My husband recently received a note from someone in Britain who used the expression "I stepped on a rake" to mean that he caused himself some trouble, or stumbled into a bad situation. Is this a common phrase, or just a metaphor this particular individual chose? Thanks. - Patty
