    Is this sentence correct:
    1-I found the right person as a colleague.

    Wouldn't 'for' be better?

    I had posted a reply to this!
    I'll have to do it again. Here goes:
    Thank you Tdol,
    I thought that "for" would be correct and "as" wrong. Actually I heard a sentence like that in a film and it struck me as strange. That's why I posted the question.
    Cheers!
