Hello, all. I have looked around the forum, but not found what I want. Can anyone suggest what the French language equivalent might be to digging yourself a hole (and jumping right in, lol)? I'm trying to find a way to say 'The more I said, the more I knew I was just digging myself in deeper' (to a hole, is understood within this phrase). I'm not looking for a direct translation (se creuser un trou pour sauter dedans etc). Really, I'm looking for a coloquial/colourful expression meaning to get yourself in trouble. Other than 'se foutre dans la merde', please? Thanks!
