    Red face Don't take my word for it.

    I wonder there are how much other usages can take place of the sentence:"Don't take my word for it."

    You don't have to believe me.
    See for yourself.
    Make up your own mind.

    Welcome to the forums, Zoe.

    Please note that 'HELP ME, PLEASE' is not a good title for your thread.

    A better title would have been
    Don't take my word for it.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'

    I'll change it for you.

    There is no need to write a post to say "Thank you". Every post has a "thank" button in the bottom left-hand corner. Simply click on that button on any post you find helpful. You don't need to tell us that you plan to be more careful next time - just do it!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The facts speak for themselves.
    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.
