    Smile Get someone far...

    "That attitude won't get you far round here..."
    I don't understand meaning of the above sentence. Please help...
    Note: "will(in the above sentence)" is expressing the likelihood in here, isn't it?

    It means "Your attitude will cause you a lot of problems here."

    "Will" in the above sentence is the auxiliary verb for the simple future tense of 'get'.

    Re: Get someone far round...

    'Round' is not part of the phrase. It goes with 'here', as in 'around here'.

    'That attitude won't get you far' is the main phrase, and means 'that attitude' will not help you.
