    He worked me like a borrowed mule!

    I absolutely know what a slop bucket is!!! I carried many of them in my childhood whenever my brother and I spent the summer at Grandma's house!! :D Grandma also had a pee pot (hope it's okay that I said that :? ). I'm sure you can guess what that was!!!! :shock: It was only used late at night if you didn't want to go out in the dark to the outhouse. I had to empty that out several times, too in my childhood!!! YUCK!!!! :thumbdown:

    Hmmm.....one saying that comes to mind is, "Like water off a duck's back."
