I dealt with a pip the other day. She arrived on time and ready to work and as I listened to her tell us how she was going to deal with the damaged tree limbs I heard her say "I" a lot. I thought she was taking liberties with the I word when clearly some other person would do the work. HA!
I don't get out very much and it has been years since my last pip. They're a treasure. It was her truck. Her crew. Her job. She was about 5' tall and armed with with 5 foot power saw and one hell of a truck.
I just thought I'd toss in a word that probably lost meaning about the same time that 'flapper' did. Still, an awesome worker and an artist with a power saw.
