How would you explain working stiff’ and ‘geometric’ in the context?
Notes on how to speak in America:
1. Do not say “Pardon me.” People in books say it constantly. Here, they ask who sent you to prison.
2. Shouting “Go fry asparagus!” won’t make them leave you alone, as it would in Spanish.
3. “Beat it” means Go fry asparagus.
4. “Punk” means fluter. Also: chump, ratso, and “sure it ain’t the YMCA.”
5. “Mexico” is not a country, but a name. Hey Mexico, comeer.
The United States is the land of the square deal and the working stiff. Even though the newspapers say nobody has a job, and deals are not very geometric.
How would you explain working stiff’ and ‘geometric’ in the last sentence?
