Just curious. This was in the quiz:
This relates to:Conjugate courir and derivatives (+avoir) in Le Passé Composé (conversational past) -
Hier, il ________ dans tous les sens !Yesterday, he ran around like a headless chicken!
It seems to me it would make more sense as "Sans tous les sens."
Is this a typo?
courir dans tous les sens is correct. It means to run around aimlessly, to scurry around.
So I just made up a new French idiom?

At least you rediscovered it. It's been around before. Sorry to burst your bubble :)

Strictly speaking 'dans tous les sens' means 'in all directions', hence the image of the headless chicken...
Hope this helps!
