: I knew someone who used to describe herself as a "rug down curtains up" kind of person. Would you know where this phrase originated? I thought it was so clever to describe someone as impatient or Type A-ish.

Isn't it somebody who thinks themselves capable of rapid no-nonsense response?

when one moves house, throwing the rug down and immediately getting the curtains up is a sign of not dithering.
