If you don’t mind me asking, where were you going when my sister and I saw you last week getting into a bus on Main Street?

If you don't mind, I would like to ask where where you going last week when my sister and me saw you getting on a bus on the main street?

COLIN: A good answer, but think about adding some punctuation, and think about whether "into" is the best preposition to use here;-)
AMIN: It can be a good idea to rearrange the sentence; I think you have a typo (where/were). You also need to check pronoun usage and punctuation;-)

My sister and I saw you getting on the bus at Main Street last week; where were you going, if you don't mind my asking?

Veronica Baig said...

ASHLEE: This is a good answer, but you need to think about punctuation; you have the one item that is not needed, and you have missed something else that is needed;-)

Ashlee Thomas said...

Veronica, you got me stumped. I think the punctuation you are talking about is the semi-colon but I don't see what I've added or I've missed .

ASHLEE:The answer is published later today;-)
