IDIOM - to "be run/rushed off your feet"

IDIOM - be run/rushed off your feet:

It means to have to work very hard or very fast.

Ex: "There's only one secretary working for the whole accounts department and the poor woman is run off her feet." - "We weren't exactly rushed off our feet - there was only one visitor all afternoon."
