    Have something in bind

    Hello,
    I would be grateful if someone could tell me the meaning of "bind" in the following sentence.
    A:What do you get out of doing it?
    B:Usually,I have something in bind.

    Does that mean 'bind" is an agreement of some sort?


    Thanks for you time and attention.

    Re: Have something in bind

    It's a typo. They meant they have something in mind. That still doesn't make much sense by itself though. Does the answer continue beyond what you quoted?

    Re: Have something in bind

    The only way I can see that dialogue (with "mind") continuing is with something like "I usually hope they'll give me money but sometimes they just feed me". It suggests that the person has an idea of what they would like to get out of doing it (whatever it is). We don't know whether they get it or not.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
