How to use "Footling" in context?
In general, the word "footling" means "of little importance or value." The term is derived from the Old English word flat, meaning "small." A footling comparison is to make a small issue seem larger than it is in order to gain an advantage. For example, if a company is negotiating a contract and one party offers a footling increase in salary, the other party may be more likely to agree to the proposal out of fear that appearing unappreciative could result in a worse offer.
