by the side...

bonjour à tous, j'espère que les fêtes ont été bonnes... enfin,

Pourriez-vous m'aider à comprendre cette phrase:
"There's hate when you fall by the side..."

J'ai du mal à comprendre le "by the side", je comprends chaque mot mais je n'arrive pas à faire sens...

Merci,
A+

    I think it may be short for "fall by the wayside", where the wayside is older English for the side of the road. Therefore, the sentence says that people will hate the person who can not continue along the given path, whether that path be physical or metaphorical.
    Anyone else agree?
