    get over it

    What do you think this "get over" means?
    1.to overcome
    2.to deal with gain control of something
    3.to complete somthing necessary and usually unpleasant
    25)While you are at work, you may dream about a month of Sundays, but your boss wishes for a week of Tuesdays. What makes Tuesday special? Monday is overloaded with meetings to “get things moving,” which aren’t very productive. Wednesday is “hump day”―just get over it, a worker thinks. On Thursday, people become exhausted

    Re: get over it

    It means "forget about whatever was bothering you and move on".

    Re: get over it

    None of the above.

    Your oddly numbered 25 is intelligible. It might mean: " 'just get past it' a worker thinks; Thursday will be better and Friday much better."

    But normally the current slang expression "just get over it" means "please just accept it and stop talking and complaining about it."

    Re: get over it

    Thanks a lot for your answer.
    25 or any random numbers before text you've seen so far simply means the number of a question or a page number of a text for me to refer back to later to write down the answer on it..
