I wonder how common the expression "to do a snow job on somebody" actually is. I know what it means, but only after looking it up here http://www.urbandictionary.com/...rm=snow%20job. Would a native speaker outside the US please comment ?
I'm asking because I feel very strongly about advanced learners of a foreign language embarrassing themselves by proudly bombarding natives speakers with phrases which only exist in dictionaries, not in natural conversation.

@PeterR
actually, if you look at the tags, this has been "OK"'d by CK, who is a native US speaker.

here "to do a snow job" can be considered like "to deceive", right?

Sacredceltic, that "ok" by CK doesn't really answer my question, which was: Is this expression commonly used by native speakers outside the US. I have a sneaking feeling it isn't.
