    Post Meaning

    Hello, my name is Carolina. Im not sure if my questions should be in this forum, but I thought that it was the most suitable, sorry if Im wrong.

    Id like to know the meaning of "Compensation Culture", it is the title of a chapter that Im reading, by the way, the book is about taboos and issues.

    I have another question about other issue from the book, which is called "Old Enough to be her grandfather", I dont understand the meaning of this phrase: "Im all for..." it is the begining of a phrase used to express how far somebody agrees or disagrees with the importance of the age into a relationships.

    Thanks in advance

    Re: Meaning

    Here is an article on compensation culture - if you do a search you will find lots more

    BBC NEWS | Business | UK compensation culture 'a myth'

    I'm all for means I support something very much.

    'I'm all for that' is an expression used in reply to, perhaps, a suggestion that you particularly like.

    Shall we go swimming? - 'I'm all for that!
