Poser un lapin

Poser un lapin, literally “to put down a rabbit”  means to stand somebody up. It is used when someone doesn’t show up to a meeting without telling anyone. Its origin is very interesting. In the 1880, for example, it meant not paying for the favors of a woman. The meaning we know today appeared around 1890 among students.
