Is the expression "go balls deep" vulger or has it entered common use like gypped or screwed?
Etiquette huh! hang on I will go ask our Queen who is the arbiter on these things
'Go balls deep' is marginally vulgar, 'up to your nuts in guts' is extremely vulgar but was common in the good old British Navy when I was there.
what is gypped ?
yea well if i use my dads marine jargon anywhere other than around a bunch of vets who know my dad some shit's gonna go down. I'm gonna classify armed forces social morays as uncommon.
I realized I use the expression simply as a means of conveying an intent to go all out etc. I want to make sure I don't inadvertantly torpedo myself in a job interview or some such thing.
For job interview it is best to stay with classical expressions, I advise looking up the keywords and expressions around the job aimed for and use them as much as you comfortably can without over-egging it
why doesn't Google have a helpful interview optimization tool.
jipped = taken advantage of , an unfair advantage (correct?)
yes, its actually a racist term. it refers to gypsies. essentially its the same thing as saying you got jewed out of something except that the expresions been used for so long most people have no idea where the term came from.
i think gypped is politically incorrect and anything with 'balls' in it, such as the phrase you mentioned and 'balls to the wall' are inappropriate in some settings, regardless of common usage.
