    when do you use "hours upon hours"

    when do you use the phrase "hours upon hours"?

    i can't find the exact meaning of the phrase, and got stuck when reading the following phase.

    -----

    thanks in advance!

    Use it to describe something that takes an excessive or unusually great amount of time.
