Two interesting idioms to discuss:
"call in a chit", as in "Are you asking me as a friend, or are you calling in a chit?" Are you asking me a favour or collecting a debt? I was wondering if someone wouldn't call in a shit by mistake.
"call in the chips", as when you sell something you own in order to get money from that. As an analogy to poker, I suppose.
Think what a way to start a new year!
