"No Truck With'em"

"I won't have no truck with 'em" - Medieval England. Truck had been borrowed from Old French "troquer", which meant to obtain goods by barter or to give in exchange. In order to barter you had to negotiate with the person you were dealing with and truck later extended to refer to dealing or trading in all sorts of commodities. The phrase means you don't want to have any dealing with the person, commercial or otherwise.
