Learn English – n English saying like “cut to the chase”, but with a negative connotation


If I say:

"You really cut to the chase there."

I think it's not clear whether I'm expressing approval or disapproval.

I'm wondering if there's a similar saying which would express the sentiment that someone has transitioned too abruptly from one thing to another.

Best Answer

You really took some shortcuts there.

It implies essential parts were omitted.

If you want unexpected transition, it would be playing leapfrog.

You're playing leapfrog on the subjects. Could you concentrate on one thing at a time?
