This page is about the slang term ass-kisser
someone who says nice things to someone in order to get something from them
- Kenny thinks that being an ass-kisser helps him get promotions in his job.
- Bosses say they don't like ass-kissers, but I'm sure some of them quite enjoy being told how clever and wonderful they are.
The equivalent slang in British English is "arse-licker".
Warning! This is very bad language. If you are a non-native speaker, you are advised not to use it. (You could cause resentment or anger if you use it inappropriately.)
This is typically used in American English but may be used in other varieties of English too.
Which of these statements would be said by an ass-kisser to his boss if he's trying to get a promotion?
