    on me / with me

    "I have it on me" vs. "I have it with me", is there any difference in meaning?

    Re: on me / with me

    Hi alikim

    As a NES, but not a teacher:

    A friend asks you whether you have a particular item that they urgently need. You drive over to their house with it.

    The friend asks whether you have it with you.

    You reply that you have it on you if you physically have it in your pocket or bag etc.

    You reply that you have it with you if it's in the car and you have just stepped out of the car.

    Hope this helps
