Dear all,

Can someone please let me know what do you say in English when someone is trying to take advantage of someone's kindness? Overindulge is not quite I wanted to know. Thanks a lot!

    You have answered your own question. :thumbsup: "He is taking advantage of your generosity." You could say, "He is abusing your kindness."

    It is "You have gone too far." / "You are going too far." / "You will go too far." etc. -> with the idea of exceeding the boundaries.
