    Welcome to the forums, Baak.

    Please note that a better thread title would have been I take it from here.

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.' (Extract from the Posting Guidelines)

    Thank you.

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****


    Hello,


    Maybe this true story may help you.

    Several years ago, two foreign tourists approached me on the street in Los Angeles and asked for bus directions to

    a particular address.

    Since I had nothing else to do that day (I am retired), I personally escorted them on two buses to the closest intersection

    near their destination.

    After we got off the bus, I continued to walk with them toward the address, which was only four blocks farther. One of the

    persons then said to me: Thank you so much for your help, but we will take it from here. (That is, "We can find the address

    without any more help from you.")
