    any old place

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    “Don’t be silly, Aileen”he would reply. “Don’t be course. You know I wouldn’t take up with a stenographer. An office isn’t the place for that sort of thing.” “Oh, isn’t it?... I know you . Any old place is good enough for you.”

    any old place = everywhere, no matter where

    Thanks for your efforts.

    I think 'Don't be course' should be 'Don't be coarse'.
