Dialect

Just come back from the canteen where I’ve been eating my lunch. One of the admin people came in to speak to the MD who was having her lunch at the same time. It seems that they wanted to invite the MD on a company girls night out. Part way through the conversation the office girl mentioned that so-and-so wanted to pull. Which caused slight consternation as our MD is American, and apparently didn’t understand the term. After a struggle I was asked if I could help explain, which I couldn’t as I could only think of terms that were either slang, worse than pull, or both.
