Hi everyone. I would appreciate someone clarifing the meaning of 'to cut someone some slack'. I´ve come across two meanings: 1 - To help someone when she or he really needs it 2 - To not judge someone very hard because he or she is in a difficult situation. E.g.: 'John is late for work again', 'Come on! Cut him some slack, his wife´s just had a baby'. Thank you for your help.
