Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Idioms 195. All right. Let's take a look
at the title today. To know someone in high places. That's the idiom for the day.
All right. Let's take a look at the note. If someone knows another person in high
places, he or she he or she knows someone in important positions, in business,
government, etc. , especially a person that could do someone a favor. So yeah. you're
calling them because they have influence and maybe you know them. Maybe they're
your good friend or maybe they, maybe they owe you a favor for some reason.
Maybe you help them with something in the past or you have some connection to
them. So you know someone in high places. All right. Let's take a look at the first
example. I could possibly, I could probably help you get a job in that
company because I know several people in high places. Yeah. Maybe I could make a
few phone calls. Maybe they would be glad to help me. You know, I might be able to
get you in. I might be able to call some people in high places. Okay.
Let's take a look at number two. She cannot get away with those crimes just
because she knows a lot of people in high places. Yeah. Maybe somebody did some
crimes, and they think because maybe they have some family members or they have
they know somebody that was close to them or close to that family. Right be
able to protect them. So it could work this way too. Maybe somebody in high
places could you do you a favor in this way and and help protecting you. Okay.
Let's look at number three. I know a few people in high places that
owe me a favor. I may have enough pull, Pull here means like the influence. To be able
to do this for you. All right oh you know you can always think of The Godfather
movies. You know , The Godfather always knew a lot of people in high
places. So that when people wanted things from him , he might be able to pull some
strings. Or he could he can know people in high places to get things done. Okay,.
Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it was clear. Thank you.
