This week's theme: Whose what?
Buggin's turn (BUG-inz turn) noun
Assignment to a position based on seniority or rotation, instead of merit.
[The identity of this original Buggin(s) fellow is, unfortunately, lost in the mist of history.]
-Anu Garg (words at wordsmith.org)
"In the [Jamaica Constabulary Force], the law of Buggin's turn is firmly
entrenched. Quality is secondary to seniority and cronyism."
Eminent posts make great men greater, and little men less. -Jean de la Bruyere, essayist and moralist (1645-1696)
