    Ease Up!

    Dear Teachers,

    A. Is "ease up!" the same meaning as "calm down!"?

    B. Mom! can you come and get me?
    - "get me" in this sentence means "pick me up", correct?

    Thanks a million,

    Namsteven

    It's used more in the sense of slow down. You can say, "Ease up" to horses.

    Hi,

    To ease up is to relax, to become less intense.
    You're right: to come and get me is to pick me up, normally by car.

    Cheers
