Hi, all, well the summer is over, so lets start talking again in this
conference. I am sure I am not the only one who has been busy, but also
I am sure I am not the only one that has tails to relate or questions
to ask or answer. I do have one question. When we get a call in we use
the slang "Banged out". Anyone else use that term (we did not use it in
the Squad I was with in New York)? Or for that matter know what the
origin of it is?

GS->In Boston, when one "Bangs out", it means to call in sick for your
->shift. Conversely, the police "Bang IN". I have no idea what the origin
->is, and I don't know if there is anyone around who does.

We use it in that sense as well, if someone calls in sick at the last
moment they, too, "banged out". I have no idea why they use it in both
senses or were it came from.
