Sloppy Seconds
Quote | Reply
Can this have a non-sexual connotation or just the sexual one?

It was used in a professional meeting today by someone, which seemed really out of place, and not something the person would say if it's only use was the sexual one.

Could they be naive? The root is sexual (AFIK) but since people now use it outside of sexual situations - maybe that person doesn't know the original meaning behind it.

Did they also talk about a threesome when asking three workers to team up on a project?

Basically selecting people to work on a project. Her first choices were taken, so she referred to what she was left to pick from as sloppy seconds. Which doesn't even make sense in the sexual context.

Good Lord no.

Someone said it in a meeting last year, and everyone, and I mean everyone, looked at them as if they'd just farted loudly.

That would be my guess, but then I thought maybe I'm just off base and it's use preceded the sexual one.

You should have asked her where she heard that term. Maybe she isn't so naive.

No one batted an eye, which is the reason I though maybe it's me that is off-base here.

I'm going with naive since she didn't even use it correctly. She was given the leftovers.

Unless she's the lesbian driving the dildo, in that case totally and woefully sexist.

Whenever I park my in a spot that someone just pulled out of I think of "sloppy seconds".

And yes, it's a sexual thought.

First off it's rude. It doesn't make any sense and it was wholly inappropriate. People were either not surprised be cause she does Thai all the time or they didn't know how to reAct to that.

I probably would have chuckled even bought it didn't make sense.

I was listening to the female then CEO of my company talking about business relationships. She mentioned the situation where both business partners are not really satisfied but not so dissatisfied to break it; she refereed to this relationship as a "circle jerk." We all wondered if she even knew what a circle jerk. She did, and funny thing is 20 years later I still remember the discussion so her picturesque language certainly make it stick in my mind.

Everyone seems so easily offended by people with different sensibilities that it is best now to stick with dry technical descriptions instead of using sexual imagery.

I'm about 100% sure the person who used this term doesn't know what it means, and that it went right over the heads of most of the other people in the room.

I think it depends on your age. I'm 36 and I can see the term sloppy seconds being used outside of a sexual context.

Poorly used.

How often do people use the word "suck" or"sucks" in common everyday chatter?

It's definitely a sexually loaded term, but can be used sorta casually in a more general sense in the right crowd ~ a professional workplace, I don't think is it.

I might use it amongst the guys in a situation that's not sexual, but does give off the same gross-ish vibe of having to work through/around someone else's leftover mess (like having to take turns shitting in a bucket on a raft trip, or maybe borrowing someone else's used bike bibs), but wouldn't drop a potentially vulgar term or phrase like that in mixed company if I wasn't pretty sure nobody would take it the wrong way.

The more curious thing to me is that it was uttered by a womens; the baseline assumption upon first seeing the question was/would be that it was always a dude saying it. Which in turn begs the same question Duffy raised... is she hot? Like, hot enough to be worth taking someone else's seconds?

I know someone who works at Target.
She was on the employee radios directing staff.

She said, "Guys, finish the isle display, c'mon, run a train on it."

She thought "run a train" meant be efficient, not the "gang bang" efficiency. She was horrified when she was brought up to speed.

I am assuming in both of these situations, if a man had said it, they would be in a world of trouble, if not out of a job. You could probably even get fired for even trying to mainsplain it them. ;-)

Three years ago, a female VP used the phrase "hot dog in a hallway" not having any clue what she was talking about. I actually heard her use it a few times and each time was in worse context than the other.
