see (someone or something) with a jaundiced eye
To view someone or something in a negative or uncharitable light that has been informed by past experiences. I used to think that Chris was a good kid, but ever since I overhead him bragging about cheating on an exam, I've seen him with a jaundiced eye. After you've been in this industry for as long as I have, you start to see these sorts of deals with a jaundiced eye.
