So we often hear somebody say well we will cross that bridge when we come to it or he'll cross that bridge when he comes to it. So you could use different people with it. But it's basically cross that bridge when you come to it. All right. Let's take a look at the note here. The note. If someone says that he or she will cross that bridge when he or she comes to it, or gets to it. Sometimes they might change the word 'come' to 'get' too. They mean that they will deal with the problem when it is nearer in time and more suitable to do so. The idea behind it is that it is too soon to worry about it. You know, to worry about it right now. It could suggest one is simply too busy now. You know to handle this. They already have their hands full or perhaps the situation may change before it is necessary to deal with it. So you might be worrying about it too soon. The situation may get better or it may get worse, but it may become more clear how to approach it later. When you're getting closer to it, you may have a better idea of what you can and cannot do or how you could get around it. If one is really lucky the problem may go away or straighten out on its own. Yeah sometimes you know, if it's if it's in the distance you never know. You might get lucky. You may not have to deal with it at all. The origin is unclear but you know but many people think or many people may think it may allude to actually crossing bridges that were less secure in former times. In the past and that there was no point or no reason or no need to worry until the time of the actual crossing. So you know, don't worry about it all the way on the trip. If it's still hundreds of miles away before you get to that bridge or 50 miles away or a day away. It's no points worry now. Worry when you get there. All right. And we have a couple of examples how we use this today. Let's not worry about it now, we will cross that bridge when we come to it. You know, this is just the way we hear it used. Or number two. This is an a/b part. A will say how will we ever afford to send our daughter to a good college ? And B says don't worry that. It is still 10 years away. We will cross that bridge when we come to it. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. i hope it is clear. I hope it was informative. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
