English term or phrase:fast
I go nowhere, fast.
This is an answer in a questionnaire. Q: "When your are going somewhere,..." A: "I'm usually early/on time/late, I get lost, I never show up" and "I go nowhere, fast".
It's almost midnight and I'm probably just braindead after a long day, but I don't get the meaning of this. Why is there a reference to speed? Why the comma? Or could it be that Americans have adopted the German word "fast" (i.e. almost) by now???
Feels like I'm going nowhere...
Any suggestions welcome!
