    Default Walk on slot

    Hi there

    I heard the expression "walk on slot" on tv the other day. I gathered it means something like have a hard time, but Im not sure. Is that correct? Is it a common expression?

    Thanks a lot.

    Hello mnf.

    I have heard of a "walk-in slot". In centres where such things as counselling or medical advice are given, it means a time when people can drop-in without making an appointment (perhaps during their lunch hour).

    Is it possible that you misheard "walk-in" and thought it was "walk on"?

    Isn't a walk-on slot a bit or guest role in something?
