    2 Questions!

    Hi, electribe from Japan.

    how does "Classy violation" mean?

    &

    If you say " Thanks! I thank...", it ` a kind of trying to say more politely?

    I am afraid in both instances you will have to give us more context. It is hard to determine a meaning beyond what you can look up yourself in a dictionary, unless we have more of the context to see what was really meant by the speaker.

    Re: 2 Questions!

    thanks for your advice.

    here`s contexts, but I listened and wrote them down, so there would be some mistakes. it comes from ``Wishbone`` Tv-show.

    0fficer: Your animal was apprehended on the Hernandes`s property.
    Wishbone:I`m telling you, I was framed.
    O:Here`s documentation of the damage.
    Ellen(mam):I am so sorry.
    O:I`ll have to write you a citation
    Joe(Kid):Citation?
    David(friend):What for?
    O:Classy violation.He`s now multiple offender.
    W:Woo...
    E:Well,what happens now?
    P:You pay a fine 150 dollars.
    Sam(friend):150 dollars?
    J:Wait, what if we can prove it wasn`t wishbone?
    O:I`d like to see that kind of evidence you get.
    I wouldn`t think he could do so much damage
    He`s such a little guy.
    3:Yeah!
    W:Thanks! i thank...(think?? I`m not sure.)
    O:You have until 5PM to file a protest with the municipal court.
    E:Ok, thank you.
    W:Lovely woman,really.
    E:Joe, i think it would be nice of you to go over and clean up
    Mrs Hernandes deck.
    S:I`ll help.
    D:Yeah.
    J:Thanks.
    W:I`m not helping.

    Are you sure it's not a Class E violation? (No, I don't know what this is, but at least it makes sense).

    Re: 2 Questions!

    Thanks, I think...
    means,
    I think you are telling me you done me a kindness, so, if that's true, well, then thank you. But I'm not so sure I should be thanking you, because I'm not so sure it was a kindness at all, so I'll just say: "Thanks, I think...."

    And Class E is a level of crime. For example, First Degree Murder is Class A. Not having a proper license to do something is Class E.

    Woo, it could be "Class E". Wishbone,the dog was caught at the scene by
    messing up Mrs.Hernandes`s deck, broking her chair and table.
    Would it be Class E violation?
