I am not quite sure about the meaning of the following sentence. Could you please do me a favor?
I wouldn’t park myself behind the cash box if you are to give me the whole dame place, lock, stock, and barrel.
Thanks a lot.
Re: one sentence
The phrase "lock, stock and barrel" refers to the three main parts of a musket (an old style rifle). Its use here means "the entire thing, including all its parts."
In other words: "I wouldn't work here if you gave me the whole store, fixtures, inventory, building and all."
