Wrong. I simply answered your question. I have no idea where you got any indication of anger in my response.

Okay , sorry again. I thought I asked so many questions and you got irritated and told me to use the sentences that I suggested. Thank you for bearing me.

Doesn't this mean "to endure"?

'Bearing with me' means 'having patience with me'.

'Bearing me' means 'giving birth to me'.

The phrase is:

She must be laughing AT me.

(I wouldn't assume that to be the case.)

Two things, Tufguy.

Sometimes statements by ESL learners are unintentionally humorous. That doesn't mean people are laughing at that person.

For future reference, please keep in mind that I might have a hard time explaining why I said something if, in fact, I didn't say it.

No, I was just kidding. I wasn't that serious about that statement but it was good. I got a chance to get two of my mistakes corrected by you guys. Thank you.
