hold on– “ticket’s on me”
what does that mean?
if I say “dinner’s on me” or “tickets are on me,”
what does that mean?
01:00
well on me simply means on top of me
so something is on me
01:06
my hand is on my head
it’s on me
01:10
but “on me” also means that I’m going to pay for it
so when he says “ticket’s on me”
he means I’m going to pay for the tickets you don’t have to pay

01:27
“it’s on me”
