WORD OF THE DAY: Thursday, June 13th

A fun way to expand vocabulary, because unlike my waistline, my vocabulary can never be too broad.


sandbag: verb

1: to bank, stop up, or weight with sandbags.

a: to hit or stun with or as if with a a sandbag
b: to treat unfairly or harshly
c: to coerce by crude means
d: to conceal or misrepresent one’s true position, potential, or intent especially in order to take advantage of; to hide the truth about oneself so as to gain an advantage over another

I felt my employer had sandbagged me, leaving me no choice but to quit.
