    Question Contact

    Hello. I heard that using contact in the meaning "if necessary please contact with me" should be avoided. Is it true? What phrase should be then use instead?

    Best wishes,
    Nyggus

    That's fine, and I understood you perfectly and I thought you started a "game" which I continued. Was my sentence fine:
    "Certainly I will contact you if I need anything."

    Re: Contact

    Yes, your sentence was fine. Sometimes humor goes right over my head (as my husband often reminds me!) Have you ever seen the movie Back to the Future? Where the bully keeps knocking on George McFly's head and asking "Hello? McFly?! Anyone home??!" That's me.
