An original-oldschool old-timer construction worker's term
for lunchbox. During this era, dukies
were made from tin, and the thermoses had glass liners in them.
As horseplay and pranks were overlooked
on the job in the old days, a man's dukie was definitely off limits, as much as his vehicle, home
and family, by (honor). Now, a guy wouldn't hesitate to steal your lunch or your meds, let alone
your wallet or your phone if he had half a chance.....so much for (union brotherhood).....
