I have been relieved by all... (passive)
Passive is more elegant becuase the personal object is put at the beginning here. Me changes to I then.
To be takes an adjective not an adverb because it is a link(ing) verb (copular verb) . All link verbs take adjectives.
I am chiming in to say that here in the US, in addition to all the expressions BobK listed, we also reinforce the idea of certitude with "you can bet the farm" or "you can bet your *ss." The second, of course, is vulgar. :) Oh, and "bet the rent" which has a sort of pleasing assonance.
