SITUATION 1 - He lent me some money last year, and now he´s coming down on me for the money.
SITUATION 2 - a) Don´t worry, I´ll pay you back with interest.
b) I´ll hold you to it...
When it comes to owing money to a person, how similar are the expressions above? In the first situation, could I also say he´s holding me to it?
In Situation 1, you wouldn't say "he's holding me to it" unless you also specified the "thing" he is holding you to - a promise or agreement that you made. For example:
"He lent me some money last year and I signed a receipt that stated I'd pay him back by the end of June. Now he's holding me to it."
