    What does get that, will you, poor person mean in the above sentence?
    I need native speakers' help.

    Re: get that, will you, poor person?

    "Get that" means "answer the door". "Will you" is like "please". I have no idea why it ends "poor person", unless that's a quote from a film or a book.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
