Burying the hatchet

1. The boss told them to bury the hatchet. Their constant fighting is affecting office morale.
2. They're trying to bury the hatchet, but they really can't stand each other.
3. He says he's buried the hatchet, but she's still really pissed at what he did.
4. Burying the hatchet is not easy when the attacks have become personal.
5. They've finally buried the hatchet. Now they're the best of friends.

Burying the hatchet means to stop fighting or to make peace with another person. (A hatchet is a small ax.)
