Thank you for your contribution. As an American, I would like to make one correction, if I may. The phrase in your document - "you all come back here now" is actually stated as "you all come back now, hear?" People who use the phrase "you all" assign it to one person as well as a group of people. The phrase you quote started in the southern states originally. It is meant to say "I look forward to seeing you again" - even if they think they are never going to see you again - if you were a someone traveling through their area, for example.

Hello Jayaraman:
Here are some more:
chip on your shoulder: A grudge or grievance; an unprovoked display of defiance. <For no apparent reason, the patient has a real chip on his shoulder and refuses to cooperate with any of the medical staff.>

Dear John letter: A letter from a person informing their spouse/girlfriend/boyfriend that the relationship is over. <He received a Dear John letter from his girlfriend the day before his suicide attempt.>

six of one and half a dozen of the other: The same, two identical things described differently. <Both courses of treatment have advantages and disadvantages. It is six of one and half a dozen of the other.>

everything but the kitchen sink: Absolutely everything, even useless, unnecessary items. <The patient is very demanding. He has ask for absolutely everything but the kitchen sink.>

Well, the list is long and endless.
Thanks for letting me share a few thoughts on this with you all.
Best regards,

From India, Madras
