    Post Put up with

    I will not put up with that sort of behavior.
    What does put up with mean?

    Different topic - but means out of place. Fish live in water, so if they are out of the waetr, they are out of place

    Hello, RonBee,

    "I would not put up with that kind of behavior," is not
    the correct language. Instead, you should have said,
    "I will not tolerate that kind of behavior."

    Sorry, you are wrong. Put up with means tolerate (as was previously stated).

    I'm sure Roberta meant 'is not correct FORMAL language'.

    Perhaps. But she would still be wrong.
