"Crawfishing"

I've lived here a long time, but I still encounter regional phrases that are new to me:
"Okay, Claribel. It sounds like you're all set, but if they start crawfishing on you, let me know, and we'll straighten it out"
Let's have a definition:
craw·fish v. To back out of an endeavor (like a crawfish trying to back out of a pot of boiling water)
Got it? And as always, your homework for today is to use it three times in casual conversation.
