Student or Learner
Hi all ,
I have heard people saying : "Hit me up when you can." or similar , I studied it and found out means call me later. Some say it's not very positive way of saying it. Is it ok if I use in daily conversatoins ? for example a guy telling me to go and see him whenever I go to their city , and I respond " I'll hit you up ? "
To hit up is to ask for money.
You would want to "look up" someone when you come to their town.
Twenty plus years ago we said "hit me up" only when asking to borrow money. Now it does *also* mean "contact me" -- at least in my region of the US.
Not a teacher
This is another good example of why you shouldn't use slang unless it's simply part of your vocabulary naturally.
If someone said that to me, I'd wonder why they thought I wanted to borrow money.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
Thanks all for your replies and clarifying..
I think I'd better ignore using it.
