hi, any english speakers know what does "you're one to talk" mean? thanks x
It is something you would say to someone who is complaining about someone but they themself have the same issues or problems that they are complaining about. It is kinda negative - you would say it to someone who is annoying - like a younger sister! LOL
Do you mind explaining that a bit more? So its never I wish i was?
I can only answer this question from an Australian's point of view - as I feel most English speakers have a form of slang & casualness in speech that is unique to their country's evolution of the English dialect.
I am of the opinion that was / were are both correct in the modern usage of the word but if you are speaking formally then were is correct. If you want to be casual in speech then was is okay but if you want to speak English correctly then the correct verb is were. But the same meaning would be interpreted by the listener.
