Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Verb Phrase 93. The verb phrase today is elbow
out someone or elbow someone out. All right. Let's take a look at the note here.
If you elbow out someone or something, out of their job or position, he or she
forces that person or at least tries to force that person to leave, so that
another person or thing can have it. Okay. So obviously this comes from elbow
itself. Just as a verb. So if we say elbow itself just as a verb. It means this. To push
out or hit someone or something with your elbow. You might know this. Sometimes
if you're trying to get through a crowd or a crowded area or maybe crowd a bus
or and somebody did this. It's not a very polite way. It's kind of an offensive way
to do it, but if somebody's trying to like just push people out of the way
with their elbows. This is what we mean by to elbow someone. So you could you
could like elbow your way through the crowd, like on a bus or a very crowded
area. You could elbow somebody. Hit someone.
Sometimes in self-defense, They teach you this or somebody attacks you from behind
you could go ( grunting sounds ) with one one of your arms you try to hit them. The person from
behind it with your elbow. If you could try to elbow someone. So let's
continue. Let's take a look at a couple of the examples here. The boss tried to
elbow out that executive, so that he could give that position to his son. All right.
Maybe he didn't want to directly fire him because maybe that didn't look good.
But maybe he made life difficult for him or put pressure on him or put demands on
him, you know, that were probably unfair. Maybe this is the way he tried to elbow
him out. Rather than directly fire him. You know, maybe he'd have to pay him
more compensation, especially if he didn't do anything wrong. But he wanted
maybe his son in that position. So maybe he would have done things to make him
unhappy in his job to make him try to leave. In this sense he's trying to elbow
him out. All right. All right. Let's look at number two. That company is trying to elbow him
because they want some younger blood. You know, younger people in that position.
Yeah. Sometimes you hear this. It depends on what the position is. Maybe they think
it's more suitable for younger people or if they get a younger person take over,
maybe they have more energy and maybe they can even pay them less. You know
because you've been around for a long time, your salary has gone up really high.
So maybe they might just try to elbow you out. Again make you uncomfortable.
Make you not really want to stay in that position. Pressure you to somehow go . They
might try to elbow you out. Elbow someone out. Anyway, I hope you got it. I
hope it's clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
