Student or Learner
I was wondering if you'd kindly help me to understand the meaning of "put in" in this context:
Does this mean that person really worked 16 hours a day or is he speaking about a hypothetical situation?How is this any different from any other job? It's a purely personal decision. What worked for me may not work for you, so there is no sense in asking.
I put in 16 hours days, and I worked 7 days a week, I made a ton of money and it was the right decision for me and my kids loved the money, but they also have admitted they were very sad on many occasions. I had very little time for my kids, I missed all of their school meetings and programs and didn't even attend their high school graduations. They turned out great and adore me. Does that help you?
Thank you very much
I would write that as either "I put in sixteen-hour days" or "I put in sixteen hours a day". The combination of "16 hours" with "days" doesn't work for me.
I work a 16-hour day.
I work 16 hours a day.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
It means "contribute" or "work".
