    Кстати, вопрос к тебе, как к знатоку пунктуации: надо ли в этом случае между словами "глубине" и "души" ставить тире?

    В приципе не надо, но допустимо, если это выделено интонационно.

    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    Well, I thought Chuvak wanted to know where the phrase came from.

    But you're right... the phrase is commonly used to describe anyone who is trying too much to impress the boss/director. It is not used normally with the "literal" meaning.

    Я, как ни странно, до сегодня никогда не слушал это выражение в смысле "sucking up". Я всегда сперва ассоциирую его с буквальным значением. Может быть, эта необыкновенная фраза в моей стране... Здесь люди говорят "suckin up". Это обычное выражение в других англоговорящих странах? Гммм... не знаю...
