VŠECHNY LEKCE ZDE
Examples: "Make sure you turn that screw very tight, we don’t want it to come loose later" or "There’s not a lot of room in here, it is going to be a tight fit."
When you are "in tight" with someone, this means that you are close to them or are good friends or have a good relationship. It can be friendship, or even love. Examples:
"President Klaus and I are very tight. I’ll see to it that he speaks to that Senator about his corruption" or "Elvis Presley and I are very tight, I’ll get you free backstage passes to his concert."
When someone is "being tight" this is another way of saying that they are being stingy, or refuse to share. Examples:
"He is being tight, he won’t let me have one of his extra pens" or "The company is being real tight right now, they won’t spend money on this promotion."
When someone is being tight, they are automatically being what is called a "tightwad." Examples:
"That guy is a real tightwad, he never even pays for any dates with girls" or "That politician is being a tightwad with our tax money. He won’t improve our streets, but he gives himself a salary increase."
Joke of the Day
A man lives in New York and hears someone knocking at his door one night.
When he answers, he sees a two meter high cockroach standing there, who then punches him right in the nose.
The next night, the man’s doorbell rings again. He answers it, sees the same cockroach, who then kicks him and punches him in the stomach.
The third night, the same thing happens again, only this time the cockroach steals all of the man’s money.
Amazed, the man goes to the doctor to get himself examined, thinking he might be crazy.
