    Cool nerve

    Hi,

    Is the following sentence correct? "She has no respect for me and she has the nerve to ask me money!!!"

    By using "nerve" I mean she dares ask me money.

    [quote=bieasy;255001]Hi,

    In North America, we would say '....the nerve to ask me for money.'

    She is the one who has the nerve.

    She has the gall, imputence, boldness, to ask me . . .
