a (damn) sight less/fewer (something)(redirected from a damned sight less)
a (damn) sight less/fewer (something)
Quite a lot less or fewer of something (than someone or something). "Damn" is used to emphasize the degree to which an amount is less/fewer. ("Less" is used when discussing uncountable nouns, while "fewer" is used with countable nouns.) We were much busier than we had expected, so we had a sight fewer staff than we needed. Excuse me, she has a damn sight less experience than I do in this matter, so I'll thank you to refer to me in the future. Oh darn, I have a sight fewer bananas than I need to make this recipe.
