comment What is the origin of the idiom “have been had”?
Another similar phrase is "to get" someone like when you say "ahh you got me" after a joke or prank, which would be translated to "you had me" or "I've been had"

@Jay Every dictionary I've checked indicates that "quadrant" can refer to the area of a plane divided by two perpendicular lines.

Well maybe that's a difference between British and American English. That word/phrase is not uncommon for me or my coworkers.
