    Re: the use of "being".

    To write about all the ways in which 'being' could be used would take more time than most of us have.

    Try to ask questions about specific problems you have with 'being', or post sentences containing this word for us to comment on.

    Hi, pussycat.

    It's impolite to say things like

    Give some examples in setences!
    When we are asking people to something for us, we use the word "please".

    Yes, "being" can be used in sentences that are in a future tense. However, the scope of your question is too broad. "Being" can be used in many ways and it's impossible to discuss them all in one post. Please, try writing some sentences with this word and someone will surely tell you what your mistakes are.

    PS: 5jj was quicker than me.

    It's not a problem. No one reasonable will get offended by such a request here when they see that a learner is making it. It's natural that a learner may not know how to express themself sometimes.

    Please note that every member is asked not to use spellings like "cuz" and "plz". We write "because" and "please" instead. We are also asked to capitalize the first letter of the first word in every sentence and to try to use correct punctuation. Your post would be better this way:

    So sorry about my impolite request without "please". I was in a hurry. Sorry again and thanks for your responses.
