    Post Get out!

    Dear teachers

    Am I correct with the following interpretation?

    The bank wanted me to pay a fee of 40 for every check returned. Get out!
    Get out = That is absurd! [I am not paying that much]

    Thank you

    Re: Get out!

    You'll also hear "Get out of here!" to express amazement, astonishment, disbelief. In BrE, you'll hear "Go on!" and in Irish English "Go on with you" (pronounced "Go on wit/wid ya")!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    In AmE English we also have "Get outta town".
