Can't get out of the bit

Posted by Robbie on January 05, 2009 at 15:09

'Can't get out of the bit'. I just used this phrase to describe my day at work and my colleague had no idea what I was talking about. It means can't get going and is a fairly common phrase in Scotland (my colleague is English), but not sure how well used it is elsewhere. My colleague asked where the phrase came from and I was at a loss, my guess would be something to do with horses, but other than that, I have no clue. Any ideas?
