TO GET TO THE POINT: meaning and examples

Good morning. 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 It means: to say or state the most important part of what you are saying and not waste time with unnecessary details. Example 1: Our work meetings are always so long because people are always telling stories and anecdotes instead of getting to the point. Example 2: Could you get to the point please. I don't have all day to sit here and listen! Example 3: 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!
