  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Idioms 282. The idiom today is to run late. Okay, Let's

  • take a look at the note here. If someone or something runs late it means that

  • he, she or it arrives or leaves later than the time expected and we do have a

  • second meaning here too. To run late could also mean to take longer than the

  • expected time. All right. Let's continue. This idea alludes to the fact that one

  • is behind schedule or will end up late for an appointment unless one can hurry,

  • move faster to make up time. Yeah. Whether you're late for an appointment or late

  • for work or late for school, you have to hurry because you are running late.

  • You're behind schedule. All right. Let's continue. We have three examples here to

  • cover these. Example number one. We are running late. We had better take a taxi

  • to make up time. Yeah. So this is what you could do maybe, if you're not too late,

  • you still might be able to try to move faster or go faster , make up enough time

  • and you still could possibly arrive on time. If you're able to move faster than

  • you usually do. Okay. But, you're still probably are leaving your house later

  • than you normally did. Or number two. The bus is running late. It was supposed

  • to be here ten minutes ago. And it's still not here. So it is running late. So

  • we often say something is running late. It's again, it's behind schedule. It was supposed

  • to be here already. All right. And number three here. This is

  • the one that we could say to run late could also mean to take longer than

  • expected. So the reason I didn't call you until now was because I was in a meeting

  • that ran late. So not only can people run late, a meeting could run late too. So the

  • meeting took longer than was originally scheduled or planned.

  • It was an hour longer than it was scheduled to be. So the meeting ran late.

  • So then I ended up making me late that's why I didn't contact you before time.

  • Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it was clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
