    bump into sb VS bump with sb

    Hi there!

    Is there any difference between these two sentences:
    "The world is so small, pal! You cannot even move abroad without BUMPING INTO each other!"
    And the same sentence, where "BUMPING WITH" would be used, instead?

    Thank you in advance!

    Re: bump into sb VS bump with sb

    'Into' is natural; 'with' is not.
