Can we use "messing up" in a sentence? For example: She was messing up with the files.
Please reply me as soon as possible.
to mess with = to handle, move, change in any way, look at, or otherwise interact with someone else's things without permission: Your boss comes into her office and finds you looking through the papers on her desk, and says "Stop messing with my things!"; or - to annoy, irritate, challenge, bother, start a fight, or otherwise be aggressive to a person: A big kid starts to bully a little kid. The little kid says "Don't mess with me or my really big brother will beat you up."
to mess up = to make messy, to disorganize (for example, a room, a pile of clothes, someone's hair); to do badly ("I really messed up on that test""
Thank you for your help. That means we can use these words in an official e-mail? This is what I assumed.
