    Re: "I am bid."

    I have received a bid (an offer to purchase the item being auctioned) for this amount.
    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.

    Re: "I am bid."

    Unfortunately, the strikethrough facility on here barely shows up, especially over words in colour or bold, so in case it wasn't clear from bhai's post, your question should have read:

    What does "I am bid mean?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
