    I'm just crossing my 'Ts" -> What does this sentence mean?

    Dear teachers,

    Can you help me with this sentence's meaning? It is said in the context like this:

    A: I'm asking you very simply. Are you in or out?
    B: I'm hear, right? What's this? A test?
    A: No, I'm just crosing my 'Ts'. We go up there, there's no turning back.

    What does crosing 'Ts' mean hear?

    Thank you.

    Thank you.
    This is an idiom, crossing the 'T's means making sure or double checking.

    It is often part of a longer idiom:
    crossing the 'T's and dotting the 'I's
    which has exactly the same meaning.
