work one’s tail off

Posted in Idioms at 10:03 am by Feng

work one's tail off — Work especially hard [see wiki]

Someone told me that he worked very hard in a company. "I worked my tail off," he said. This idiom has the same meaning as "work one's fingers to the bone", but is more suitable for a light conversation.
