The other day a friend of mine was describing her new boss and she said:
“Well he’s alright but he’s a bit of a Jack the lad.”
What she meant was, he has a lot of girlfriends!
a Jack the Lad (British, informal, old-fashioned)a confident and not very serious young man who behaves as he wants to without thinking about other people.
Three children with three different women? Well, he always was a bit of a Jack the Lad.
