I was trying to explain to my friend yesterday how I dropped my mp3 player years ago and that it's never been working the same. Somewhere along the line I said "The cord got caught in the bus door and my mp3 player got yanked out of my pocket. It made a hard landfall and I had to take the battery out and put it back in to get it working."
Is there anything I said that sounds awkward? maybe where I had to 'take out' the battery and 'put it back in'? I don't know, at that time when I actually spoke out the sentence I felt mind-boggled, trying to find the right words.
I have one question, it kind of flashed in me minutes ago, but I realized I use 'caught in' and 'caught on to' interchangably. Now I know that 'caught in' is right, I want to ask if 'caught on to' is valid. If it is, do they mean the same or different?
