That should give us a foot upPosted: March 8, 2019
Overheard at a meeting. It is a congruent conflation of “get a leg up” and “a foot in the door”, both meaning to receive support or an advantage. “Start off on the right foot” (to have a favorable or positive start) may also be in the mix. I suppose getting a foot up is just a little advantage? Kudos to Martin Pietrucha for hearing this one and passing it on.
