    Re: Mr

    The expression "I am on it," aside from its literal meaning, can mean, "I will take care of this."

    Boss: "We'll need to call all the North American offices and tell them delivery will be delayed."

    Employee #1 (picking up phone): "Don't worry, I'm on it."

    Boss: "And what about the overseas offices?"

    Employee #2: "I already told Sandra to put calls through to all the European offices as soon as they open for business."

    Boss: "Oh, you're already on that. Good."

    Is this the meaning you are looking for?
