Have your lunch handed to you

Posted by Leslie on October 28, 2008 at 16:04

I'd like to ask if anyone knows the origin and the usage of 'have your lunch handed to you.' I know it means 'to be outperformed.' But does it imply that if you're not working hard more, you will be got rid of (have your lunch handed to you and go back home.)?
