Run out

When something runs out, it is finished. 

1. I almost always used to run out of time while writing my exams. I always needed just an extra five minutes.

2. Most people start running out of money towards the end of the month, just before they receive their next paycheck. If you “live from hand to mouth”, you have just enough money to live on and nothing extra.

3 When your money runs out, you can either “beg, borrow or steal”. I think most people end up borrowing - either from a friend, or the bank. I really don’t like borrowing, so I try to be careful in planning and sticking to a budget so that my money doesn’t run out in the first place.

4. Do you run out of patience quickly or do you have the patience of a saint?

5. Nobody likes running out of toilet paper. Enough said.

6. When you’ve been doing something risky, dangerous or difficult for a long time, we can say that your “luck will run out” sooner or later. Sometimes a sports team goes on a winning streak… but it can’t last forever.

7. When we’ve thought of everything we can, we sometimes run out of ideas. Usually when we take a break or sleep on it, we’re able to come up with some new ideas later.

8. I can’t remember the last time I had a pen that ran out (when the ink finishes). Then I realized it was because I don’t use pens as much as I used to, because everything is becoming more and more digitalized. These days my printer runs out of ink or my laptop battery runs out.

9. Have you ever run out of gas/ petrol while you were driving? It happens to the best of us.

10. Our stove ran out of gas while we were roasting a turkey for Christmas Eve. It was not good timing.
