Phrase of the Day (ram (something) home)-07MAR21

Today’s “Phrase of the Day” is ram (something) home and it is a phrase meaning “to make sure someone clearly understands something by emphasizing it strongly/repeatedly”.

Example Sentence:  For decades, we’ve fretted (worried) about fast food; did we really think that fast shopping would be consequence-free? What seems different with Amazon Fresh is that everything about Amazon, right and wrong (efficiency, depersonalisation, manipulation), is suddenly right up in your face. It’s the ramming home of not only Amazon’s dominance, but also its attitude problem.
