    Question!^^

    Hi teachers,

    I have a question.

    "Would someone open the door for me?"

    Could you please tell me some possible meanings of the sentence?

    Thanks in advance.

    Literal meaning:
    Your hands aren't free;e.g., you're carrying packages,
    "Would someone open the door for me?"

    Figurative meaning:
    You want employment or to advance in your career but are having a difficult time getting an interview or promoted,
    "Would someone open the door for me?"
