    BAR WITH

    Hi

    I had a problem with some online order so I was chatting with one of representatives.

    The process took longer than expected and while she was trying to make me patient, she said "Please bar with me".

    I just understood this as "Please stick to me" or "Please bear with me" but still wondering what this means exactly.

    Please advise !

    Thank you

    Hello good74u, and welcome to the forum.

    That must have been a typo. I'm sure she meant ''please bear with me."

    By the way, "please stick to me" is not natural. Try, "please stay with me."

    Also say, "she asked me to be patient and said, etc."

    It means "Please wait patiently while I work on this."
