Mark- I think you're right; "meeting with an accident" was probably the intent. However, being a married man, I have to be very careful with prepositions. If my wife says to meet her in the grocery store, I'll go inside. If she says to meet her at the store, I'll wait out front. Critical survival skills.

^^ Good stuff, Richard. Although you generally meet someone AT place X: "I met him at the grocery store." And: ' accadent' = meet WITH an accident.

Is this what you are asking? Something like this? "to" ban something people play a trick "on" an attempt "on" someone's life Some of them I don't understand.
