    drop me off = dump me off

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me your opinion concerning the following two sentences?

    Can you drop me off on the way home?

    Will you dump me off on the way home?

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    I'M NOT A TEACHER:

    Having said that, "drop me off" is a common idiomatic expression to ask somebody to stop and allow you to disembark, deplane, or jump off even in motion, from a moving vehicle.

    "Dump me off" invites the listener to bodily grab you and throw you down, off, overboard, or anywhich way off a vehicle.
