Being around the clock is something not everyone can do.
Google says; “When you’re working around the clock, you’re busy all day and all night long.Around the clock means for an entire 24-hour day. The phrase around the clock is used most commonly when someone is hard at work, or is doing something difficult.
What do you think? Is there anyone who really can work around the clock? Is it only a slogan to promote your services for the crowds?
Some dancing was described to be around the clock, why is that?
Or Rock around the clock? It’s old history, but it’s still amusing to watch what was happening in old days on youtube. You would see people having fun, as if they are having more fun than what we do now.
If we examined that expression more closely, we’d find that “work around the clock” works more like an idiom.
An idiom, which is a phrase with a figurative meaning. This particular idiom means to work all day and all night, or seven days a week, 24 hours each day. No person is actually able to work such hours, but the phrase is often used when a person works much longer than the average. In such a case, he may feel as if he works all the time because he has little time for rest and socializing. Some people may also say they work around the clock when they have both work and family responsibilities that take up most of their time.
This phrase is usually used to mean a person works all day and night, seven days per week, although this is not technically possible.
A person may use this phrase to describe someone who works extended hours rather than literally all day and night. If working 9 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday is the norm in a particular area, the phrase working “around the clock” may apply to someone who works 7 AM to 10 PM six days per week.
The phrase would not apply to people who are workaholic though, remember that! 😮
Our Question no. 58 for our competition today is:
Our new invention for today is a new “Floating Rubbish Bin” that keeps the oceans clean. Read more, if you’re interested in this business!
To Australian surfers Andrew Turton and Pete Ceglinski, the ocean is everything – it’s their playground, their muse and a big part of their income. And despite a rise in awareness about environmental issues in recent years, that playground is getting dirty. That’s why Turton and Ceglinski decided to get proactive, and designed the Seabin – an automated marina rubbish bin that collects floating rubbish, debris and oil, 24/7.
