    cart somebody around 1

    Hello everyone!

    Does "cart somebody around" mean "give somebody a lift on a regular basis not from time to time"?

    Do you need a ride to the show?
    Nah, my friend will give me a ride-she is always willing to cart me around.

    What do you think?

    Thank you

    P.S.

    cart me around

    To be given rides everywhere.

    Nah, my friend will give me a ride - she is always willing to cart me around. (You need a space either side of the dash.)

    What do you think?

    Thank you Unnecessary. Thank us after we help you.

    P.S. "cart me around" = "To be given rides everywhere"
    It doesn't necessarily mean "on a regular basis". It simply means she is always willing to give the speaker a ride (give them a lift in BrE) whenever he/she asks for one. For all we know, he might only ask for a ride once every two years!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
