TO GET TO THE POINT: meaning and examples
Today we're going to end our series of Daily Vitamins about GET
with a very common expression that is useful when someone is talking too much!
Today's expression is
: to get to the point
: to say or state the most important part of what you are saying and not waste time with unnecessary details.
Our work meetings are always so long because people are always telling stories and anecdotes instead of getting to the point
Could you get to the point
please. I don't have all day to sit here and listen!
I'm trying to get to the point
, but I can't if you keep interrupting me!
If you have any questions about today's expression, or any other GET
expressions that we have covered this week (or if you would like to make a suggestion), please don't hesitate to contact me
Have a good day and an excellent weekend!
