    do me one

    I sometimes hear "do one" in films meaning "go away". I think I once also heard a man say "Do me one, I don't care". He sounded pretty annoyed. This "do me one" , is it a variant of "do one"?

    That's right. Do one means piff off, go away, f* off; To do a dissapearing act, fuck off, leave, depart, bugger orf, remove oneself, make yourself Scarce


    Not a teacher at all

    Boy, I've never head this.

    Do me one = Go away?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
