Much Ado About Nothing

The phrase 'much ado about nothing' comes from Shakespeare's play “Much Ado About Nothing”. The word “ado” means busy activity, bustle or fuss.

 

Meaning: To fuss over something trivial. To overreact on something that is insignificant.

 

Example:

It is much ado about nothing to worry about your son's career when he is just an infant.
