介绍: Today we will be learning a new slang, apple polisher.
An apple polisher is something of a liar. He or she will tell the boss anything they want to hear, whether it’s to keep a job or get a raise.
This is a saying that first emerged in school, based on the practice of a student bringing a favorite teacher an apple for a treat. When the student polished the apple he gave to the teacher, his fellow students thought, wow, that’s going too far. He’s an “apple polisher.”
On the job, the expression came to mean that it was okay to say a boss looked nice in her suit, but another to spend 15 minutes complimenting her in front of a large crowd about her suit. In that case, his fellow workers would smirk and call him an “apple polisher.”
You should take much care of him , and hes a real apple polisher.
Mary is an apple polisher; she can even handle illegal documents for the boss.
