    be good with something

    1 I am good with John.

    Does that mean anything?
    Does it mean:
    a I am kind to him (I am good TO him)
    b I get along with him
    c Together we work well
    d I am fine with his taking a particular responsibility

    2 I am good with John as manager.

    I think 1 could mean 'c' and 'd'. 2 sounds fine to me.

    Re: be good with something

    Not a teacher

    1.) The person in question is happy/satisfied with John. So it should be "b". But strictly workwise, it could be "c".
    2.) Sounds ok, but I think it should be "as a manager".
