in a tight corner(redirected from in tight corners)
in a (tight) corner
In a particularly difficult or awkward situation, especially one that is not easy to get out of. Jeremy's found himself in more tight corners since he left college than I care to recount. I just don't know what's going to become of that boy if he doesn't clean up his act soon. I'm going to be in quite a corner if this loan isn't approved.
