yes sir, yes sir, three bags full, sir

(redirected from yes sir, yes sir, three bags full sir)

yes sir, yes sir, three bags full, sir

Used sarcastically to characterize someone who obsequiously accepts any order or demand, no matter how unwise or unreasonable. It's never wise to surround yourself with subordinates whose only contribution to your ideas is "yes sir, yes sir, three bags full, sir." You need people who will challenge you to think or act in ways you hadn't considered.
