    van der

    I heard the phrase "don't be van der the reprimander" in a movie. This was said by the main character of a movie to his friend who was upset he was having a party. The friend was going to end the main character's party.

    I know what reprimander means (one who reprimands) but what does "van der" mean or refer to?

    Re: van der

    I believe it is an idiom or something like that. I`m not saying IT IS AN IDIOM... it is just a premonition, I don`t have concrete proofs.
