    "not just big noting it"

    A: He gave me a penicillin.
    B: Well, if he's not just big noting it, you'd better see if you can get enough for two.

    Can someone please tell me the meaning of this (the bold part)?
    Thanks a lot!

    Re: "not just big noting it"

    Both sentences are ungrammatical, and the second does not make sense. I would say they should be:


    A: He gave me penicillin.

    B: Well, if he's not meticulous about recording it, you'd better see if you can get enough for two.
