-._.- Get on with it

At a toy factory

Worker1: Well, what do I do?

Worker2: Stand at the assembly line.

Worker1: Oh, is this an assembly line?

Worker2: Yes. So, we can assemble, put together, these boxes of building blocks.

Worker1: How do we do that?

Worker2: Watch me, I start by putting the square blocks in the square holes. You’ll soon get the hang of it.

Worker1: Get the hang of it?

Worker2: Get used to doing it. Get on with it.

Worker1: OK. I’ll put some more square blocks in the square holes. Da, da, da, that’s fun.

What does “Get on with it” mean in this dialogue?

Thank you

Normally this means “proceed” or “start doing it”.


Thank you so much, NearlyNapping :rose:
