The Whole Nine Yards Robert Sheridan bobsheridan A cement truck driver I met told me the expression comes from the fact (at least he said it was a fact)that cement trucks (some cement trucks?)carry nine cubic yards of cement mix. So if someone orders a full truckload, he's ordered "the whole nine yards."

I wuzn't about to argue with him.
