Turn signal

- It does irritate him when people don't make turn signals when they cross the streets, when they have no shirts or T-shirts on and wear wrinkled clothes when they go out.

- Does this sound natural enough? :)

Thanks a million!

Re: Live legally

Dear Erik!

- Thanks very much for your post. It is very useful. "NHHL" It was a typo. Sorry! I was surfing on the internet looking for some information when I submitted my post, maybe I didn't concentrate enough. My bad! :)

Thanks again and have a nice day!

Re: Live legally

- Can I say "I want to prepare paperwork for them to immigrate legally into the US."? Or is there a verb to mean that you can make someone immigrate into some country? :)

Thanks so much!

Live legally

- For example, I moved to America a long time ago and became an American citizen and now I want my parents and family to move to the US to live with me legally. What phrase or verb do you use to describe this act?

Re: Don't backbite

Dear Edwin F Ashworth, Erik_Kowal and other members,

- I agree with you guys that my 2 sentences sound kind of caustic, but do they sound natural in daily conversations? If not, how would you make it more natural? :)

Thanks a million!
