(redirected from time's getting on)

time is getting on

It is getting late (in the day, before a deadline, before something happens, etc.). We should probably start heading home—time's getting on, and I don't want to get stuck in rush hour traffic. You had better finish your report soon, time is getting on before the board meeting.
