As far as expressions go, Sweeping it under the Rug is one of those sayings that bring up images of covering things up, hiding “stuff” or worst, simply ignoring what happened and moving on.

There is a great episode of the Simpsons where Homer is put in charge of garbage and keeps sweeping the garbage under the rug (i.e., the city) until it explodes from golf courses and manholes.

That’s what happens when you don’t deal with the problem and try to hide it. It’s always there, it never gets better until it explodes at the worst possible moment.
