Line from Barbershop I

Posted by Bookworm on June 03, 2004

In Barbershop I, a woman catches her boyfriend with another woman and is angry with him. She says something like "You're gonna have me catch a case before I go to work?" What does "catch a case" mean? It has been suggested that she was referring to having intercourse with her boyfriend and risking "catching a case" of whatever the girl had. Any ideas?
