French term or phrase:Mme-M. tout-juste
"Il consiste à compartimenter sa vie en trois sphères bien étanches :
- sa vie publique, sociale et professionnelle, mondaine… Ce chapitre d’existence va chercher sur internet les comparateurs de prix et commentaires consuméristes, les sites d’employeurs et ceux d’emplois, les news en continu : de quoi se comporter en ***« Mme-M. tout-juste »***."
Talking about how life is divided into three compartments, public, family and personal, and how each uses the internet in a different way.
Does this just mean acting anonymously, or is there some more specific allusion here? Thanks in advance.
Explanation: Tout-juste can mean "just about" or "only just". My guess is that here it means 'tout simplement', the idea being they behave as just "Mr or Mrs anybody", "Mr or Mrs nobody in particular".
