    NOT A TEACHER


    (1) I do not know who is who, but I shall try to give you my opinion. I do not claim

    that I am correct. If someone shows me that I am all wet (wrong), I shall, of course,

    immediately delete this post.

    Joe: Can you help me?

    Mona: Look! Ty and I have to meet our dates, so we can't help you. We'll go home

    and get the others to help you, though.

    Joe: Okay, but don't tell Mom and Dad. I don't want them to think that I am

    not a responsible person.

    Mona: We won't tell them. And don't worry about the others. The situation will be as

    good as it would be if they were here this minute. = They will be here! That is my

    guarantee! You can depend on their being here to help you.


    *** Another example


    Boss: When am I getting that new chair I ordered? I need it for tonight's party.

    Martha: Oh, I called the company an hour ago, and they said it will be here by

    3:30 p.m. You don't have to worry.

    Boss: Are you sure?

    Martha: Believe me, boss. Good as here! (That company has a good reputation. If it

    says that something will be delivered by a certain time, it will be delivered. It is 100%

    dependable.)
