We use the word "charrette" (which is a cart)in French in two occurences :
- when we have very quicly against a deadline. It's a word architects use
everytime they have a job. They say : "Je suis charrette", "nous sommes en
- when we fire several people : we say "c'est la derniere charrette" or "ce
n'est que la premiere charrette" (it's the last group to be fired, or it's
only the first group).

But will this be of any help? I don't know.
