  1. I didn’t know this slang expression. Any real examples? I mean, like in a series, movie, etc.? Is it something you use? Have you heard it from other people?

    PS: Prissy seems hard to get!

    Hi there Francisco!

    I can’t think of any examples off of the top of my head from TV or movies. I do use it sometimes. I probably said it a lot more in the 80s and 90s, but I still do say it from time to time. I do hear other people say it as well. It’s used with friends, so you wouldn’t hear nor say it to your boss for example.

    If I can remember a movie where they used it, I’ll let you know.
