1) She is beating about the bush.
When someone is avoiding a topic of conversation by sidetracking or using other evasion techniques, it may be said that they are trying to beat around the bush. It is a way of saying that someone is avoiding a problem. It usually involves trying to indirectly work towards a subject, without coming right out with it.

2) I have developed cold feet for the job.
I want to quit my job but can't afford to.

3)The boss called for the file.
Boss is depended on you or wish you could just help him on silly work. Boss may also have lots of queries from you on the file.

4)I have decided to call it a day. ...more
