Topic: use that brush to paint me

Thank you very much thar. Your answer help get rid of the doubt in my head.
Topic: use that brush to paint me
Posted: Saturday, October 07, 2017 10:19:06 PM
It seems you think that my friends are mostly bad.
But you shouldn't use that/the same brush to paint me.
But you shouldn't paint me using that/the same brush.

Is it understandable to say something like that.

I know that the right phrase is 'to tar sb with the same brush', but I just would like to know how it sounds the way I put it. Is it far from being natural and understandable to the native English speakers.

I would like to ask about this phrase, that is 'What's it to...'
Is it still in use and well understood in today parlance.

For example, when my friend, Tom, told me that Jim, who is not my friend and I dislike him, asked him that where I would go on my holiday.
Then I replied angrily, "What's it to him? It's none of his business at all."

Is the phrase ‘what's to him' in keeping with the situation?


If yes, then can I add something like this to it, reading: "What's it to him to butt in my personal life?"

Is this still ok?

Thanks in advance.

Now again, I have a doubt and could you please check if my two sentences below ok?

1. Who asked whose friend (about) how to get to whose house?
2. Who used whose gun to shot whom to death?

Should it be 'Who killed who' or 'Who killed whom'?

And is this one ok 'Who killed a dog of whom?'?

Thank you Priscilla86.
Topic: in good company
Posted: Monday, July 10, 2017 6:10:58 AM
I just learned how to use 'in good company' but now a doubt leap to my mind.
I wonder if I can use the phrase this way:

1. If you think so, then you are not in good company.
2. If you think so, then you are in no company.

Are these two sentences acceptable and easily understandable?

Thanks in advance.
