Money

Post by Stevenloan » Wed Jan 17, 2018 1:57 am

Hi everybody! I'm walking on a street and a man is walking in front of me, a part of a dollar bill in his back pocket is exposing. I'm afraid that a bad person will pickpocket him so is it correct to use the following sentence in this situation?

"Excuse me! Your money in the back pocket is exposing"

Thanks a lot!

In England you shouldn't use exposing, use showing.

In the USA I would say 'exposed' or showing.
