    Only people can crap out. (Dogs don't talk. And they don't play craps (a dice game).)

    Re: Cut

    "cut off" when you make a right or left turn right in front of another car. You cut her off or you can "cut off" a person's organ.
    "cut down" a tree, or cut down on a budget (spend less)
    "cut out" a picture from a book.
    "cut up" when you cut something into pieces.
    "cut to" I personally never used this :)

    Re: Cut

    I haven't used the same either.

    However, I have often heard the words, "cut to the chase" being used. Does this mean being competitive?

    Also, what does "cut to cut" mean?

    Re: Cut

    "I was cut up" means "I was upset".
