    Talking itís all because of you!

    Hello~ There are two different situations, one is blaming friend the other is thanks friend. Can I use "itís all because of you" in both situations?

    A: The class has started 20 minutes ago, how come you turn up now?


    B: Hey, itís all because of you!
    You told on teacher I went to pub, and I was told him off for almost one hour lesion.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    A: Lucky Iíve passed all the essay, itís all because of you.
    I canít imagine today without your help.
    I will return your kind someday.


    B: Hey, give over. Donít embarrass me.

    Yes, "It's all because of you" can be either praise or blame. Good question!

    Wink Re: itís all because of you!

    Many thanks for your help Charlie Bernstein

    Would you help me again thise sentence please?
    I wrote in other way, hope it makes sense.. hehe~

    1. You told our teacher I went to a pub, and I was given a good telling-off for one hour. (does it sounds natural?)

    2. Hey, give over. -> I tried to say here, please stop praising me, that's enough.
    Hey, get over it -> does it mean "please stop praising me, that's enough"?
    Sorry but I'm not sure what does it mean~
