I can't understand the meaning of "take that thought any further" in the sentence:

A: You can't stay in a hostel. They're for backpackers and drunks.

B: Yeah. Maybe don't take that thought any further.

  • Possibly "think further (some more) about hostels and realise that you are a backpacker or drunk"? Commented Feb 6, 2022 at 10:51

Don't take that thought any further.


Stop thinking about it.

If you take something further, you develop it, you advance it to a higher level or more serious degree.
