Phrase: A drop in the ocean (British English) / bucket (American English)
Meaning: A tiny amount of something, that is, unimportant, insignificant or not enough:
A hundred bucks is a drop in the bucket. I need a million dollars.
Our complaints were a drop in the ocean, that is, a waste of time because they were not even considered.
