“The English language is often confusing. Take, for instance, two common idioms we use in our everyday lives: “It’s a dog’s life” and “Work like a dog.”
“It’s a dog’s life” refers to dogs being able to laze around and sleep all day, having no worries or issues more pressing than dinner time. “Work like a dog,” on the other hand, suggests just the opposite. It means working to your maximum ability for an extended length of time. How can these two phrases both be appropriate when they mean contradictory things?
