Dear experts,

The dictionary definition of GET ONE'S TICKET PUNCHED - 'die' or be 'killed' apparently does not cover all other meanings associated with this slang expression as demonstrated by numerous examples listed in:

Could you comment.

Thank you,

Hello, Yuri:

I don't know this slang expression, and so have nothing of substance to say here.

I do see, though, at least one example on those pages in your link with the literal meaning: to have the conductor -- on a train, for example -- punch a hole in your ticket.

I hope someone more knowledgeable about this expression will post something on this thread.
