And there is the related "drop a dime," meaning to rat someone out.

How about the saying "Shinier than a dime in a goat's ass!"

A "dime" is also a very good looking girl.

Testing this theory:

A. Megan Fox is a dime.
B. Megan Fox is a fox.

The correct answer is B.

Conclusion: you people are O-L-D OLD

Interesting. I have honestly never heard the word "dime" used in that context. Next time I go to the Montana, I will have to work that into some conversation and see what happens.

Do you feel weird mimicking either the push-button or thumb-and-pinky phone handset motion when you gesture for someone to call you?

Nowadays it makes more sense to do a scrolling motion or tap your ears' imaginary bluetooth button to make a call.

Dear Frank...I do believe that your very familiar comment to one of my age, is just plain unfamiliar to the youth on the "Thread".

We had so many wonderful little tidbits that we used in response whenever we were bullied...and, we were:-) So many good ones. Your quote among them. Fun to see it even if we cannot say it anymore.

Now...we just say, "Who gives a rat's fanny"....or, something along that line. Thanks for the memory, Frank:-)

If you're a gambler, a "dime" = $1,000.
