: Hello dear friends:
: it's night, the nurse in the animal hospital calls the vet over an urgent case and she says:
: "sorry to drag you out"
: What does she mean: sorry for wasting his time, or waking him up, I couldn't find this combination:
: dragging somebody out.
: Thank you very much
It means to pull/drag you away from what you were doing. It's often used whem someone is relaxing after work and is called back in for some emergency or other.
