  1. In Italy, I heard the expression ‘ti perdi in un bicchiere d’acqua’. I liked the expression and did a bit of research. I found out that it means ‘to get confused by something trivial’ or ‘to get lost in the details’, but I couldn’t find any equivalent expression in English.  

  2.  We have a similar expression in Spanish.
    Te hogas en un vaso de agua. You drown in a
    glass of water. You get shook up over small things.
