    rack my sack...

    Hi guys

    I have a question about the meaning of "rack my sack", I heard it in the movie "Dumb and Dumber to".

    They had a box which they didn't know what is in it. And this is the conversation between them:

    1: I wonder what's in this sucker.
    2: That thing is worth a fortune! Be careful!
    3: It would be nice to know what's in it, though.
    1: I've been racking my sack about that.

    Re: rack my sack...

    I have never heard that phrase. My best guess is that it's a replacement for the more common "(w)racking my brain" which means "to think very hard about something to try to work it out".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
