day in, day out

All day and every day, regularly, constantly. The expression was so defined in a dialect book by W. Carr in 1828 and was widely used by the end of the century. It was a cliché by the time C. Day Lewis used it in describing his school days in his autobiography, The Buried Day (1960): “One boy . . . was kicked around, jeered at or ostracised, day in day out for several years.”
