Go easy (on someone/something)

(originally posted April 3, 2006)

Definition 1: "go easy" on someone is to o be lenient, to be gentle, to punish less

Definition 2: "go easy" on something is to take less, use less, etc.

Example 1: From the movie Equilibrium

[They = the government]
Preston: "I'll make sure they go easy on you."
Partridge: "We both know they never go easy."
Preston: "Then I am sorry."

Example 2: "Go easy on the champagne. It has a kick to it that sneaks up on you."
(Don't drink too much champagne. You don't feel its effects until much later.)
