cap off


what does it mean? " cap off"

It depends. What’s the context?

“so sorry about the delay. I had an unbelieveable week last week, and that was capped off with have my 4 wisdom teeth removed earlier today.”

The sentence is flawed, but it means that act completed the week.

The current day would never be part of last week, though.

As Mordant says. It means to complete an experience, and is usually either used to emphasise a particularly good ending to a good all round experience or, as in your example, a particularly bad ending to a bad all round experience.

We went to the beach, had a barbecue, and capped off our visit with a fireworks display that evening.
The economy is in decline, and to cap it all off, oil prices are increasing.
They provided us with a great meal and to cap it all off they served a wonderful dessert.

I understand it clearly, and I think, I will use it a lot! Mordant: so according to it, it’s not needed to use passive voice, so the speaker made a mistake when he used passive voice? It should be capped off and not ‘was capped off’, is it right?

Anyway, Thank you both of your replies

The passive voice wasn’t a mistake. It’s fine.

I think you may be confusing this with what I said in another thread about “oppose to” and “opposed to.” If you are, please read that again.
