From time to time I hear the phrase rain check. For instance
I have to take a rain check on that.
I would say that means
I have to get back to you on that issue.
- How do I use that phrase?
- What does it mean?
- Where does it come from?
- I always think while hearing rain in rain check that it sounds a little different than the word rain. Is it pronounced differently? It sounds like rai-n check. But I could be wrong.
