English in a Minute: EIM 285 Rule of Thumb

Welcome to English in a Minute

The thumb is the shortest finger on your hand…

RULE OF THUMB

But what does a thumb have to do with...rules?

Person 1: I thought you were supposed to be in Mexico City for your friend’s wedding.

Person 2: Yeah...about that...I missed my flight last night. I thought getting there 40 minutes early would be enough time, but it wasn’t…

Person 1: For international flights, the rule of thumb is to get to the airport two or even three hours early!

Person 2: Unfortunately, your advice comes about ten hours late, Jonathan.

A “rule of thumb” is a general estimate. It is not scientific or exact. Many people think this expression came from an old English law that permitted a husband to beat his wife with something no thicker than a thumb. But in reality, this expression comes from using body parts as units of measure. In our example, Jonathan tells Anna that a good rule of thumb is to arrive at the airport two hours early.

And that’s English in a Minute!
