    Do you have a question for us, Batman? And why does your post start with "I man"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It depends upon the context. Most likely "that" would be correct, but there are exceptions. For example, if the woman is talking about something the man is holding in his hand, he might say "this is all you talk about."


    Also, your initial question: I man said to a woman at the dinner table should read either "A man said" or "I said".
