You think? Explain.

Also, are you a native English speaker?

My native language is Spanish, this shit does not exist in my language. Every verb has its own word, not this bullshit.

I live in China. English is spoken all day at my job. I can't get away from it even living on the other side of the globe. I constantly mess up phrasal verbs and people laugh.

I once told a female coworker "I want to come on to you" meaning I wanted to "come over" to you to check work stuff. She accused me of harassment.
