24/7

Most of my work is done online these days, and i ' am always surprised at how many people expect me to be available 24/7, answering emails as soon as they arrive night or day.

It wasn't  too long ago the people tend to work at fixed timetable. when works have done, they go to home , and that is end for the day. But in the internet on my shopping, banking and the other all with on services has given an idea that is everything should be available all the time. That is explanation why 24/7 comes in.

When something 24/7, you can pretty guarantee that the things  are available all services offered all the day without intteruption around the clock. But it only recently bacome so widespread, 24/7 , 365 .

The Oxford English dictionary first included 24/7, we back it in 1993.But is only recently years , that is bacoming so widwspread covering shops ,website , and evene people available every night, every year, which more or less discrible my work rating.

 

it is my time to do dictation , please to have tolerance for my mistakes!
