Two men talk and the first one one says that he sacrificed a lot for the second one and that he is in trouble right now. The second one starts laugh and answers to him, "It's no concern of yours truly'.
I'm wondering what it means. Does it reffers to "It doesn't prove your faith" or something like that? I hope you'll help me figure it out :)
No, he doesn't but I made a mistake. He Said, 'It's no of concern to yours truly'...
But the first version made more sense - 'It's no concern of yours truly'. (Possibly a comma could be read into it, so that the speaker is saying 'keep your nose out of other people's business': It's no concern of yours, truly. I think this is unlikely, but it's possible.)
If you're sure of the new version, there could be a typo: 'It's not of concern...'. But that typo would change the vowel sound, so it's more likely to be wrongly transcribed than misheard
If 'yours truly' is being used as a synonym for 'me', it would mean that it is none of the speaker's business.
(Yours truly = signature of a letter = the person speaking)
Thanks, Bobk. Of course, now I remember hearing this phrase, normally used as a complementary clause in correspondence, in a conversation, exactly in the meaning you specify. At that time I thought it was individual application, but it turns out the phrase was in common use.
A solution always seems so obvious when somebody else has pointed it out to you. You just wonder how come that you didn't think of it yourself.
Thanks for this question, Bud-bar.
