Then let me not leave it til I get the whole stuff.

I am sorry to be annoying again, but I need to know it.Did you just confirm my thought about being used by people?collocation - a combination of words in a language, that happens very often and more frequently than would happen by chance.
Let me say it like it is on my mind.
If the following sentence happens often in speaking, then why can't we call it a collocation?
Could you tell me the reason you are always late
Regarding that you said the reason why is a collocation, so it is the correct answer.
