    ain't fittin' to roll with a pig

    "I've been working at a construction site all day. I ain't fittin' to roll with a pig."

    Did you get to hear that expression in everyday conversation?= very dirty?

    Re: ain't fittin' to roll with a pig

    McGraw-Hill Dictionary of American Idioms and Phrasal Verbs says it's a rural expression.

    ain't fittin' to roll with a pig - Idioms - by the Free Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    Re: ain't fittin' to roll with a pig

    Three comments:
    1. I have never heard or seen this before.
    2. I still understood immediately what was meant.
    3. It will sound better if you can do it with a credible US Southern accent.
    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.

    Re: ain't fittin' to roll with a pig

    Phrased this way, it is something that is definitely more in place in the American south than anywhere else. Someone from the North might say "I've been working construction all day, I could knock a buzzard off a garbage truck."
