    Default what does tolerate lip mean?

    hi all,

    She looks like a librarian. There is a look in her eye that warns him she will not tolerate lip.

    What does "tolerate lip" mean? This girl does not like people chit-chating??

    Tks, bee

    lip refers to lips moving. She will not tolerate (any) lip means, she won't tolerate backtalk, responses to her statements, questioning her authority; It means, one should listen and accept her words; don't argue.

    All the best,
