I found a post asking the meaning of so much for on StackExchange, however, I still can't quite get the idea of the following phrase.
- Text from Harrington... thanking you for tickets to the game. Yeah, so much for a burst pipe.
It's the line from an American drama, the background is a man lied to a woman that his colleague Harrington got a burst pipe at home and couldn't make it today, the woman found out the truth later and said that line angrily.
Sorry for my poor expression, I'm an English learner and really want to figure out the exact meaning of so much for in this line.
According to CDO, so much for something means:
used to express disappointment at the fact that a situation is not as you thought it was.
But I think it's not enough for understanding this line and translating it into my mother language.
