How would you interpret this phrase “doing his Mr. Big thing”?
How would you interpret this phrase “doing his Mr. Big thing” mentioned in the last but one sentence?
I would think it means the man, Gelfand, was commanding the other man, as if he was an important man.
What do you think?
PS: the excerpt is taken from “Kneller’s Happy Campers” written by an Israeli author, Etgar Keret. And I’m reading an English translation.
“C’mon.” Gelfand wouldn’t let it go. He put on his grody leather piece. “Where to?” I asked, trying to stall. “Superdeal,” he announced. “Let’s go get the reward they owe us.” “Us?” I asked. “Just come on and stop jawing,” Gelfand commanded, doing his Mr. Big thing. So I shut up and went.
