Get a free hand
I get a free hand from my boss in hiring new staff.
Hour hand 时针
Minute hand 分针
Second hand 秒针
The hour hand is just past the "8" so you know the time is just past "8 O’clock"
Gain the upper hand 占上风
No matter how hard they try, the other team is alway gaining the upper hand.
Hand in your notice
Give in your notice
I found a new job so I handed in my notice last week.
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
A: I think I'm gonna quit my job..another firm is going to offer me a better job.
B: Are you sure? You probably shouldn't quit unless you know you're gonna get in for sure. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
