    Pushing it ?

    I heard someone saying something like

    "It was great..... Ok~ great maybe pushing it but ~~~~~ blah blah blah"

    I sort of get what it means but how exactly does it mean?

    and could you give me some other examples of using it?


    Many thanks

    Re: Pushing it ?

    The speaker probably means that the word 'great' was an exaggeration.

    It would help if you gave a little more context than 'blah blah blah'.
