Term of the Day: drive by

drive by--to go to the monthly union meeting to get your card stamped and to vote, staying for less than five minutes. If you don't go to four union meetings in one year, you have to buy next year's stamps for your card.

Term of the Day:"This is a show-and-tell situation"

"This is a show-and-tell situation"--after an accident or where something is damaged, come over here and look at it. I can't really describe it to you. In most cases, it is bad.

Expression of the Day: "I don't know. I'm not paid to know"

"I don't know. I'm not paid to know"-- the ultimate Indian response...I'm just doing what I'm told to do, I don't have any answers.

Term of the Night: bird-dog someone

bird-dog someone--to harass a coworker, usually maliciously.

Term of the Day: "I don't know. I'm not paid to know"

"I don't know. I'm not paid to know"-- the ultimate Indian response...I'm just doing what I'm told to do, I don't have any answers.

Term of the Day: "I'll turn you into a hood ornament!"

"I'll turn you into a hood ornament!"--Jerry Lewis, when he was at "Damn Yankees" in 1995, told his dresser, "I'll turn you into a hood ornament" once when he was dissatisfied with something, meaning that he'd run him down with a car. I think that must have come from Jerry's years in Las Vegas.

Term of the Day: Hollywood sober

Hollywood sober--where someone has given up the hard drugs like coke and heroin, but smokes a lot of reefer to make up for it.
