I have in my diction this phrase:
Meaner, minor things
that I've always understood as a way to say "things that are less important than other things."
Before using it in a work email today, I googled the phrase to make sure I was spelling it / understanding it correctly. However, Google yielded no confirmation that this is even a real phrase that people use.
Am I making this phrase up? Does it make sense? Perhaps my spelling is incorrect and google did not throw me a bone? What am I missing?
