FGC Goal #1: American Phrase #24: TO BE HOGGING SOMETHING

Current Goal: Learn 50 American Phrases in 25 Days!

Are you often HOGGING things in your house?

When some family member of yours walks into the living room, do they often see you zoned out on the couch HOGGING THE REMOTE?

Are you reluctant to give up a space in your favorite spot at the dinner table to anyone else for the simple reason that HOGGING THE MAIN SEAT at the long dinner table is almost your birthright?

Or maybe you’re always busting on your friends for trying to get the best spot in your company dining room because you believe that HOGGING THE TABLE at the window is only something you’re entitled to do?

If all the above mentioned characterizes you as a person, there’s quite a good chance that you have a habit of HOGGING many other things and the list isn’t limited just to items you can sit down on…

If you have to share your PC or laptop with someone else at home or work, others may find that you often hog it.

You may also be HOGGING THE SHOE RACK at home with your sneakers, casual shoes, sandals and what not while others can barely fit a pair of slippers into the shoe rack!

Now, I guess it’s quite clear to you what the word TO HOG SOMETHING means, but if you want to find out more about it – please watch the video above!

Thanks for tuning in,

Robby 😉
