Hello there, person-using-the-word-raincheck
I have to officially admit, until relatively recently, I didn’t have a clue what this meant… and so google + I teamed up to ensure non of my dear readers should ever suffer the same horrific fate.
Definitions of raincheck on the Web:
A slip issued with a shipment when there are not enough copies of a document available for distribution to all selecting depository libraries. The raincheck indicates that more copies will be acquired and sent at a later date.
Hope to have saved you much embarressment and faux-pas opportunities.
Yours most faithfully,
