actually 办事 has no exact meaning, it only says"to do things ",so sometimes it is a dark expression to say "make love"
now that it's a dark word ,it's meaning varies .
people around me use 办事 when they want to relieve nature....................errrr

整 in the northeast of china means "to do " as the same.

Posted on: What's Your Surname?June 12, 2009, 07:00 AM
for most offical situation , we may ask each other only the surnames , for example
-您好，请问您贵姓？ nín hǎo,qǐng wèn nín guì xìng?
-免贵姓陈。 miǎn guì xìng chén.
-哦，陈小姐，…… o,chén xiǎo jiě.......
in the expression above we used "贵" to describe the surname whose you are talking to .
The literal meaning of "贵" here is 'honorable'."请问您贵姓" is a formal way to ask for a (partial) name ,on the other side ,"免贵" reflects a feeling of humility.
