Yesterday, we had a little situation on the job which ended up with me escorting a ConEd worker through part of our site while our major fall fundraiser was going on. One of the local police was in the immediate vicinity, a 27 year old guy who makes me look like a junior petite. The guy is a gym rat who owned a small nutritional supplement store as a sideline (because he was unable to run the store full-time, he ended up selling it for a small profit after a few years of breaking even). This guy started off his career as a police officer in the City of Mount Vernon, a municipality in which I lived before moving slightly west to the City of Y______. Needless to say, Mount Vernon is a much rougher community than the community in which we both work. Having a shared connection in our past, we hit it off at once. In our conversation, the cop pointed over our fence and said, "We don't have a lot of calls in your vicinity, what's up with that?" I told him that we handled things in-house, and that I had a couple of incidents in which I warned people not to jump the fence (I think it was guys who wanted to take a leak on our property). I then proceeded to tell the guy about the new hire who didn't last the night. The cop compared the guy to a portion of the female anatomy (knowing the rigors of childbirth, comparison to this anatomical feature should never connote weakness). Ignoring the low-grade sexism of the response (90% of speakers of American vernacular English seem to use this term inappropriately), I mentioned that I heard that the guy was 6'3" and weighed about 400 lbs. The cop did a double-take and told me, "What a waste of big!"
First time I've ever heard the term... I hope it's never applied to moi.
