Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Business"

The meaning of "Business" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does sticky business mean?
A: It means that something is difficult to achieve properly. It can also mean something dangerous or risky. However, in the context of the sentence you shared, it sounds more like a certain person is hard to get along with for some reason. If she's "sticky business at the best of times", it sounds like she's difficult to please or has high standards or something.

For example:

"We should be able to leave without being noticed, but it will be sticky business."
Q: What does get all up into our business mean?
A: Your business in English does not only mean a company or work. It can also mean personal space or things that concern or involve you.

"That's none of your business!" or "This is not your business!"
Rough translation: "This is not something that concerns or involves you".
Here, business refers to "things that concern you". So you're saying this is not something that concerns you.

To "get all up in" is a way of saying to "get in", where "all up" strengthens the "get in". So you could say "I jumped all up in that lake" or "I parked all up in that spot". This sounds very childish, but is okay to say.

So, to put it all together. She tried to "get all up into our business" means the "freaks" tried to get involved in things that only concern the two girls. Also, it could mean the "freaks" tried to physically get too close to them.
Q: What does Doing business mean?
A: 做生意
Q: What does "our businesses" mean?
A: I would say it means companies.
Q: What does business foundation of a company mean?
A: Core values of the company, what makes the company the way it is

Nov. 25 and 26 are your working days, so we will treat you as a paid days off on the two days. Does this sound natural?
A: @yuzumiizu Hmm... well budget means a limited amount of money to spend. For example, I only have $150, I will stay for three days, so for each day, my budget is $50.

I'm still trying to figure out what this situation means exactly. Maybe you could explain it to me in Japanese instead?

I'll try to make sense of it though.

So we have a professor, we'll call him 山下先生, and he is going on a trip for 3 days. As for the first two days, Yamashita-san's traveling expenses will be paid for by another university, because he is working on those days. For the last day, he will use his own budget to pay for his expenses.
Does that make sense or sound correct?

I also heard you say that you work for a university. I don't know if that was just for me to know or if it is part of this context. Hope that helps some!

I didn't know he was still in the game after so many years.


I didn't know he was still active after so many years. Does this sound natural?
A: I think all of these sound pretty natural, but have very slightly different meanings. The first implies someone owns a business and you thought it may have failed. The second is extremely broad, and "around" in this case could mean either "living here", "working here", or "alive". The third one is extremely informal and I might refrain from using the term "the game" as it has some mild connotation towards illegal activities, or at least towards a very competitive industry or workplace. The fourth is similar to the first, but it to me instead implies that you thought he'd have retired voluntarily by now.
