it's high time

Meaning: If you say it's high time something was done, you think it should have been done already, and is overdue.

For example:

  • It's high time Mick got a real job. He's been wasting his time singing in that Rolling Stones band for too long.

  • It's high time you started looking after your body. You're not a teenager any more, you know!

  1. he's been paying it too long
  2. he's just lost his job
  3. he's had a job for months
