1."Aunts are usually formidable creature." (make it negative without changing the meaning)
- Aunts are usually not friendly creature.

2. "This is fairly large house." (make it negative without changing the meaning)
- This is not extremely small house.

Kindly check if I have attempted correctly or not.

Hi everyone,

I am really finding it difficult to recall an idiom which means to leave one's job hurriedly, without even informing one's boss in advance. I suppose it has the word 'drop'. Kindly help me find out that idiom.
