: If you have got the book "The Multicultural Workshop" by Linda London Blanton & Linda Lee (published by Heinle & Heinle Publishers), you can see the article "A Lucky Traffic Light" inside by Irving Stern, in which my "cut" and "apple" questions come out of.

:
: So does "cut" mean "get 100 in that new job"?
: Who is called an apple?

Sorry, sphinx, I don't have the book. Concerning "cut", were you quoting directly from the "Lucky Traffic Light" story, or paraphrasing? The word didn't make sense to me in the context you gave; can you quote a few sentences directly? (I don't recall your "apple" question--what was the date?)
