    Are these sentences natural? Sept 13

    Hi,

    Are these sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. Did you see my a** being handed to me in the meeting?

    2. If I know Jacksonville the way I think I do, you guys like fishing and soccer.


    3. Those speed bumps are really doing a number on my suspension.


    Thanks,
    MG

    Where I'm from, yes, all three sound natural, assuming they are used in the appropriate context.

    They're more natural to speakers of AE than BE.
