    Red face Usage of this side and at my end

    Hi,

    I would like to know how and where to use this side or at my end?

    Is it right to say, this is James this side.
    The problem is at your end.

    Thanks

    Is it right to say:
    This is James this side.It is a normal use and Ok
    It is also used idiomatically, as:
    This side of the grave: meaning-while you are alive
    We must all try to live with a purpose this side of the grave.
    This side of the story: meaning- what is told to you and not what actually happen behind the scene.
    You are telling this side of the story which may not be true.

    The problem is at your end. It is a normal use and Ok some more examples:
    I am Ok here and hope all is well at your end.
    Please check the matter at your end.
    It can be also used idiomatically, as:
    His confession of the crime is the beginning of his end.

    Thanks
