    come to the point

    We are now in a hurry, so come to the point.

    Is the above expression too straightforward to ask someone to talk faster?

    Thank you.

    Re: come to the point

    It's not asking someone to talk faster; it's asking them to stop beating about the bush. It's pretty direct.
