    Dear Nicole:

    As a native English speaker, what is your best guess as to what these expressions mean?

    Best wishes,

    Petra

    Default Re: Stand On Ceremony

    Someone (A Lady) asked about the following idiom;
    "Don't Stand On Ceremony With Me",
    and wanted to know what it meant.

    Well, if my knowledge of English idioms has not failed me yet;
    it means “don't be formal with me”.
    Unless there are some other meanings that I know nothing about!

    The Ever Willing Linguistic Samaritan!
