    Please tell me the meaning.

    Please tell me the meaning of this talk.

    A man in the museum(auction place?) is talking to the waitress and says this.

    "Actually, I知 more of a Jack man myself, but when in Rome."

    What does it mean??

    I think it has a connotation: the author actually has a good figure according to Rome standard.

    I知 not a teacher.

    Hi mioumama,

    "Actually, I知 more of a Jack man myself, but when in Rome."

    In my humble opinion you have to see the following link:

    every man jack: Definition from Answers.com

    every man Jack = everyone, all ordinary individuals

    He has the feeling that he is more than an ordinary individual i.e.an outstanding personality just in Rome.

    Regards,

    V.

    Re: Please tell me the meaning.

    I'm a Jack man myself usually means 'My favourite drink is Jack Daniel's whiskey'.

    If he's talking to a waitress perhaps he's in a bar where they don't stock it, so he's going to settle for the local spirit.

    (I'm puzzled about how a museum can be mistaken for an auction place.)
