    OK, here is the phrase below:
    As soon as his future employers heard he had a criminal record,they dropped him like a hot potato.
     

    Barque

    Banned
    Tamil
    In that sentence, it means they immediately lost interest in him. They dropped him, figuratively, just as you might drop a hot potato that burned your fingers.
