    upsize

    I hear the term 'downsize' pretty often, but not 'upsize'.
    Is it commonly used now?
    Thank you.

    Re: upsize

    Good question. Downsizing is a euphemism meaning, "You're fired." We don't usually create euphemisms for good news.

    Re: upsize

    You can also upsize your fries and drinks, can you not?

    (Although I know Itasan used the word in different sense)

    Re: upsize

    Thank you very much, everybody.
    I don't eat fast food, so I'm not very familiar with
    such food.
    "Upsize my drink, please." How big?
    Do these work too?
    "Supersize me."
    "Supersize my hamburger."
