Most people enjoy working for several reasons — their job might be fun, or they like their employer and the other people at work. Most people I know, however, work for the money. I do not know anyone who is “loaded” — or extremely rich. Most of my friends work to earn enough money to live. They have to “make ends meet” — they have to earn enough money to pay for the things they need. Some even live “from hand to mouth” — they only have enough money for the most important things. They struggle to earn enough money to “bring home the bacon” — it can be difficult to earn enough money for a family to survive. Sometimes, poor people even “get caught short” — they do not have enough money to pay for what they need. Or they have to spend or “lay out” more money than they want for something. When this happens, poor people have to “tighten their belts” and live on less money than usual. I hate when I have to live on less money. It takes me longer to get “back on my feet” — or return to good financial health. However, other people are “on the gravy train” — they get paid more money than their job is worth. These people “make a bundle” — they really “rake in the cash.” In fact, they make so much money that they can “live high off the hog” — they own the best of everything and live in great ease. Sometimes they “pay an arm and a leg” for something. Because “money is no object” to wealthy people, they will pay high prices for whatever they want. Sometimes, they even “pay through the nose” — they pay too much for things. I am not rich. I did not “make a killing” in the stock market when my stocks increased in value.

Yet, I am not poor either. When I go out with friends, I do not want to “shell out” — or pay a lot of money. Often, my friends and I will “chip in” — or pay jointly for a fun night out. When we go to restaurants, the meal is “Dutch treat” — each person pays his or her own share. Once, the owner of a restaurant gave us a dinner “on the house” — we did not have to pay for our meals. However, I admit that we had to “grease someone’s palm” — we had to pay money to the employee who led us to our table. The money was for a special request. Yes, it was a “buy-off” — the employee put us at the top of the list for a table instead of making us wait like everyone else. We had a great time that night and the meal did not “set me back” at all — I did not have to pay anything. Because of that experience, I will always remember that nice things still happen in a world that is “driven by money.” But, that is “just my two cents worth” — it is just my opinion.

Some expressions describe people who are important — or who at least think they are. One such expression is bigwig

In the 17th century, important men in Europe began to wear false hair, called wigs. As years passed, wigs began to get bigger. The size of a man’s wig depended on how important he was. The more important he was — or thought he was — the bigger the wig he wore. Some wigs were so large they covered a man’s shoulders or back

Today, the expression “bigwig” is used to make fun of a person who feels important. People never tell someone he is a bigwig. They only use the expression behind his back

“Big wheel” is another way to describe an important person. A big wheel may be the head of a company, a political leader, a famous movie star. They are big wheels because they are powerful. What they do affects many people. Big wheels give the orders. Other people carry them out. As in many machines, a big wheel makes the little wheels turn

Big wheel became a popular expression after World War II. It probably comes from an expression used for many years by people who fix parts of cars and trucks. They said a person “rolled a big wheel” if he was important and had influence

The top of something is the highest part. So it is not surprising that top is part of another expression that describes an important person. The expression is top banana. A “top banana” is the leading person in a comedy show. The funniest comedian is called “the top banana.” The next is “second banana.” And so on

Why a banana? A comedy act in earlier days often included a part where one of the comedians would hit the others over the head with a soft object. The object was shaped like the yellow fruit: the banana

Top banana still is used mainly in show business. Yet the expression can also be used to describe the top person in any area

A “kingpin” is another word for an important person. The expression comes from the game of bowling. The kingpin is the number one pin. If hit correctly with the bowling ball, the kingpin will make all the other nine pins fall. And that is the object of the game

So, the most important person in a project or business is the kingpin. If the kingpin is removed, the business or project is likely to fail

Kingpin is often used to describe an important criminal, or the leader of a criminal gang. A newspaper may report, for example, that “police have arrested the suspected kingpin of a car-stealing operation.”
