At full stretch 竭盡全力

當我們形容某人工作狀態是 at full stretch, 這就意味著他已經是竭盡全力的在工作。

例句

New models of mobile phones are very popular and manufacturers have been working at full stretch to meet the demand.

My mother wants to make my granny's 70th birthday the event of the year and she's been working at full stretch in the kitchen to prepare her best dishes.

請注意

短語 to stretch the rule 字面意思是把規則拉長,實際是指做的事情有違規則, 但情有可原。

My boss is very strict when it comes to taking days off but when I my son had a stomach bug he stretched the rules and allowed me to work from home.
