What do you take pictures of? 2. What types of pictures do you shoot? Your answers will be greatly appreciate...

A ride home

A: Could you give me a ride home?
B: Where do you live?
A: University City.
B: Sure.

- Hi guys! Is "Would it be too much of a bother for you to give me a ride home?" considered a natural replacement for "Could you give me a ride home?" in this situation?

Thanks very much!

"Thank you both so much for your answers"

We need some sort of "sarcasm font". Now, I'm suspicious of everyone. :)
Hi trolley! I don't understand what you mean. What do you imply?

Thanks a bunch

Hi everyone! According to an online dictionary " Thanks a bunch " is used for thanking someone, often as a joke. Does it mean it's a lot safer or more sincere to use " Thank you very much ", " Thank you so much ", " Thanks a lot " or " Thanks a million "? Your answers will be greatly appreciated. St...

An entire row

A: Was your flight to Manchester crowded?
B: No, it wasn't. I had an entire row to myself.

- Hi guys! Is "There was nobody but me at the row I sat at" a natural substitution for "I had an entire row for myself." in this situation?

Thanks so much!

But don't tell a soul

Bill: Is your brother getting married?
Sally: Yes, but don't tell a soul. It's a secret.

- Hi everybody! Besides "don't breathe a word" and "keep your mouth shut", is there another common phrase to substitute for "don't tell a soul"?

Thanks a lot!

No worries!

Hi guys! Several Australian acquaintances of mine said that in Australia it's very common to say "No worries!" when someone thanks you. Is this phrase also commonly used by you and native speakers where you live in this context?

Your answers will be greatly appreciated.
