in fact, i have the same situation with you long time ago, but now i am ok ,becanse i know i should live happy everyday and there are so many friends who care me.
Cheer up dear friend...time heals most of the pain.
Love (to be meaningful) must be free and without constraint and from the heart. Great joy can come from this as well as great pain when the object of devotion oes not notice or worse not care. Stay soft hearted and live in hope of better days and be at peace.
It will be ok Blue. Tomorrow is another day and who knows what possibilities that brings.
I'm so sorry you're having a bad day.
yes,mtpspur,you are right,thank you very much!
Thanks all of you!!!!
You are all kind-hearted!!
Oh is it common in Britain. I didn't know that. Thanks.
Just to add to Virgil's comments, calling someone a 'star' is definitely a compliment. Perhaps it is a peculiarly British phrase, but it's in very common use here and always means something nice
I've been working on comments to your blog in reverse order so I know that you have mastered posting. By the way--love your kitten avatar as I have 3 cats of my own at any one time (plus a dog). Plus th stuff I don't know how to do on a comuter would fill a book.
There is nothing inherently wrong with doing a job in expectation of monetary gain. But I believe it is better if a person gets personal satisfaction in the work they do. Also good to reevaluate from time to time your dreams, ambitions, and goals and think about the person you hope to be in the future. Hoping good things for you.
I agree with both of the above. The term 'deal' can be taken as just another way to a person doing business with you. Every new job takes some getting used to and a fear of the people in charge is normal until you get used to the work and your confidence increases. Try to relax and just think of answering one customer at a time and learn from each transaction. It'll get better. Hoping for the best.
1) Yes I agree with Fifth, the person is receiving a 10% discount and is inquiring on how to get the money.
2) "You have been a star to deal with" is apparently a complement, though it's an odd phrasing. To call someone a star I assume carries a positive meaning. Deal as a verb has these meanings:
Main Entry: 2deal
Inflected Form(s): dealt \ˈdelt\ ; deal·ing \ˈdē-liŋ\
Date: before 12th century
1 a: to give as one's portion : apportion <tried to deal justice to all> <dealt out three sandwiches apiece> b: to distribute (playing cards) to players in a game
2: administer , deliver <dealt him a blow>
3 a: sell <deals drugs> b: trade <deal a player to another team>
1: to distribute the cards in a card game
2: to concern oneself or itself <the book deals with education>
3 a: to engage in bargaining : trade b: to sell or distribute something as a business <deal in insurance>
4 a: to take action with regard to someone or something <deal with an offender> b: to reach or try to reach a state of acceptance or reconcilement <trying to deal with her son's death>
The meaning in the sentence you are asking about is with definitions 3 or 4.
Well, it's a little difficult to comment out of context, but I'll give it a try.
1) Is the discount a refund? My impression with the first statement is that the person is asking how they receive the discount in cash terms - for example, if the discount was not originally applied when it should have been how will they receive their £5.30.
2) It sounds like a genuine compliment. The phrase 'deal with' generally means 'to have dealings with' so the person is saying that you have been a good person to work with, and that in their opinion you have given good service/done a good job.
I hope that helps.
Thank you both of you two~
Welcome from me too, bluelala.
At least you found out early in your life that the teaching children vocation was not for you. It is good that you have the opportunity to go back to school and work on achieving your dream. I wish you the best of luck.
Welcome Bluelala. I hope you achieve your dream.
