German idiom for you that I just spotted in the press: jemandem einen Korb geben, "to give someone a basket". Rejecting someone, especially in a romantic context

@pup_hime "sorry, you're not my type, have this handy vessel for carrying yourself out of my house in"

@theoutrider A little harsher: "jemanden abblitzen lassen"
(blitzen - flashing or lightning)

@theoutrider interestingly it comes from an old french marriage ceremony thing.
