    how did you get to go all over?

    hi,

    i heard someone asking this question.

    the guy wanted to know how someone else managed to print some documents.

    i wonder what "go all over" means.

    thanks,
    jc

    Nothing is clicking for me, JC. I need more context.

    hi riverkid,

    good that u have answered my question because i am precisely in canada now.

    my doubt is about ALL OVER.

    i have been hearing this expression since a long time ago but i don't understand its meaning.

    "poverty is spread all over the planet" i understand but it's not the point.

    i don't understant "to start all over" or "tear down all over".

    can u explain?

    thanks

    i have been hearing this expression [since] for a long time [ago] but i don't understand its meaning.

    "poverty is spread all over the planet" i understand but it's not the point.

    Here it means 'everywhere on the planet' but you say you understand this meaning.

    i don't understand "to start all over" or "tear down all over".

    can u explain?

    thanks
    In 'to start all over', it means to start from the very beginning. In other words none of the advances can be used, any advances have to be rejected/scrapped and a new start initiated.

    "tear down all over" means about the same thing. Imagine a house that was started but framed improperly so that it was a danger. It was rebuilt but it was still done poorly so the inspectors made them "tear it down all over again".
