Every Monday is a meeting day at Tony鈥檚 accounting firm. This Monday, the agenda was long and each manager was only given five minutes to report how their team was doing. No one had extra time for a longer meeting; the longer it dragged for, the more work would be waiting. That became a big problem when it was Tony鈥檚 turn to speak. Known by everyone to be a verbose and windy guy, Tony simply cannot stop speaking once he starts. And this Monday wasn鈥檛 an exception. Tony knew that he only had five minutes to speak, but for some reason he thought that everyone was enjoying his talk, so he went on and on, making jokes that no one laughed at and used difficult vocabulary as he talked.

 

As the clock passed the seven-minute mark, Tony鈥檚 boss couldn鈥檛 stand it anymore so he interrupted and said, 鈥淭ony, you gotta cut to the chase, we ain鈥檛 got all day here.鈥

 

Tony was slightly confused, because he thought he had been saying important things the whole time. He tried to hurry up a bit and get to the main part of his report, with his brain telling him to 鈥渃ut to the chase鈥 every five seconds.

 

Eventually, Tony鈥檚 talk finished at the 15-minute mark. He talked three times longer than anyone else did in the meeting. Everyone looked slightly annoyed and the meeting didn鈥檛 end on time, but Tony tried his best to 鈥渃ut to the chase.鈥

 

The phrase 鈥渃ut to the chase鈥 is used when someone is talking for too long and you want them to get to the point. Make sure to only use this phrase to people of the same or lower status than you - saying this to your boss or professor could get you in trouble. Another way to say this is 鈥淚 am going to cut to the chase鈥, when you are not given a lot of time to talk and so you鈥檙e going to leave out unimportant details.
