Like vinegar to the teeth and smoke to the eyes, so the slacker is to the one who sends him on an errand.
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
as smoke. As the acidity of vinegar causes the unpleasantness and pain to the teeth, and by softening and dissolving alkali of the bone, impairs their texture, and renders them incapable of mastication; and as smoke, by irritating the tender vessels, causes the eyes to smart, and prevents distinct vision; so a sluggish messenger is a continual vexation and loss to those by whom he is employed.
