Young Mr. Smith had an idea for his employer. It was an idea for saving money for the company by increasing prices. And the same time, Smith suggested that the company sell goods of less value. If his employer liked the idea, Smith might be given more pay. Perhaps he might even get a better job with the company.

 

Business had been very slow, so Mr. Smith’s employer thought a few minutes about the idea. But then she shook her head, ‘I am sorry, Smith,’ his employer said, ‘it just will not wash.’ Now the meaning of these english words should be ‘it will not get clean.’ Yet Smith’s idea did not have anything to do with making something cleaning, so why did his employer say ‘it will not wash’.

 

Most word experts agree that it will not wash means it will not work. Eric .. wrote that the saying probably developed in Britain in the 1800. Shala .. used it in the story published in 1849. She wrote, that……. Ms. Br.. seems to have meant that the dyes used to colour a piece of clothing were not good. The colours could not be depended on to stay in the material. In 19th century england, the expression came to mean on undependable statement. It was used mainly to describe an idea. But sometimes it was used about a person.

 

A critic once said of the poet Robert Browning, he won’t wash. The critic did not mean that the poet was not a clean person. He meant that Browning’s poems could not be depended on to last. Today we know that judgement was wrong. Robert Browning still is considered a major poet. But very few people remember the man who said Browning would not wash.

 

Happily for the young employee Smith, his employer wanted him to do well in the company. So the employer talked turkey to him. She said, your idea would be unfair to our buyers, think of another way to save money.

 

A century ago, to talk turkey meant to talk pleasantly. Turkey isn’t ….. thought to be speaking pleasantly to one another.

 

In recent years the saying has come to mean on a tempt to teach something important. Word expert Charles .. tells how he believes this change took place. He says 2 men were shooting turkeys together. One of them was a white man, the other was an American Indian. The white man began stating reasons why he should get all the turkeys for himself. But the American indian stopped him. He told the white man, ‘Now, I talk turkey to you’.

 

Mr. Smith thought of the better idea after his employer talked turkey to him. He was given an increase in pay.

 

So if your idea will not wash, try talking turkey to yourself and come up with the better idea.
