    Re: I need help

    Welcome to the forums.

    First, a quick note: In future posts, please try to write a title that describes your question, like "more than enough" instead of "I need help."
    Second, THANK YOU for using proper capitalization. (That doesn't often happen here.)

    It means I don't need or want any more of whatever is being discussed.

    It could be negative: A mother is angry about her daughter's rude tone. "I've had more than enough of your rudeness, young lady."

    It could be positiv: "Oh, thank you for that delicious meal. And no thank you, I couldn't eat another bite. I've had more than enough. It was so good, I ate more than I should have."

    Edit: Fixed typo

    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.

    I assume you meant "your", unless this is some usage I'm not familiar with.
