    Lightbulb Whenever you have a chance?

    "Whenever you have a chance please send it to me."

    What does this mean?

    Thanks!

    It means "send it to me when you have/get the time". Nothing urgent.

    Re: Whenever you have a chance?

    On its own the sentence means "Please send me a "chance" when you get one".
