|1.||Pull the ladder up|
Used in a sarcastic sense.
When someone gets something, but only for themselves, while leaving the rest of the group waiting for a kind gesture that never comes...as in, man gets on the boat and pulls the ladder up while the rest stand on the jetty in confusion at this selfish act with no way to board.
Sitting at dinner table Chloe realises there are no forks so goes to get one for her self
Everyone else sits and waits patiently thinking she will return with forks for all...
Chloe returns with just one fork...
Group exclaim sarcastically "oh jeeze Chloe, pull the ladder up why dont you!"
