How to use tedious in a sentence?

  1. Ken Meeks:

    It’s hard enough to get up in the morning and go through this tedious process of getting dressed and getting a cup of coffee. Then to do therapy is difficult. More mentally than physically. You do repetitive things — gross motor movement, something for the fingers, then something for the wrist. Repetitiveness is the key to all of this.

  2. Oscar Wilde:

    They are horribly tedious when they are good husbands, and abominably conceited when they are not.

  3. Xavier VanHove:

    But, here's the silver lining. This is actually forcing them to look at systems harder than they otherwise might. So this difficult, long and tedious exercise will eventually make RBS a much better and more efficient bank.

  4. Laura Hadden:

    We’ve always said that if it gets tedious then we can just stop, but it hasn’t gotten boring yet.

  5. Jeremy Hay:

    Zenefits takes away a lot of the tedious work and allows me to focus on bigger-picture items, it’s also a much more professional experience for the employee. Think about how you’d feel if you were to sign up with a company, and all the paperwork’s online, and you can digitally sign all of your documents online. It makes you feel like, ‘Wow, I’m with a company that has it all together,’ even though Zenefits is really doing all the legwork.
