If you would tell me that, I would think, “who does he/she think he/she is, my new boss?Man, I have shit to do and I ain’t gonna waste.” To maintain a peaceful environment, I decline but would suggest to go ask the Human Resources department; they have plenty of time.

Use instead, could you give me a tour around the office. I would decline, because of the said job, but at least you sound cordial.

Translations of "Show"

Q: How do you say this in English (UK)? Show me as many as possibley another way to saying of 'gone out' in this example
"Raged cold Wind blowing to my room and now even light has gone out"
and is this correct? natural? if isn't, how to correct
A: Nice to see you again, too! 😄 Ahhh, sorry for misunderstanding your question - totally my fault! I didn't read it correctly 😭

First things first...

'to my room' (x) can be used! In your sentence, it just wasn't possible because when someone/something enters or goes through a room, the word 'into' is needed in most cases. 'To my room' is definitely possible. It will be in situations when something/someone is going to the room. Examples:

Hotel reception: 'We have your dry cleaning. Will you collect it at the desk?'
Guest: 'No, please send it to my room.'

'Let's go to my room and watch a movie.'

'As soon as I get home from school, I immediately go to my room and play music.'

Other examples of 'gone out'

'"Raging cold wind is blowing into my room and my light just went out."

'"Raging cold wind is blowing into my room and now my light has gone off."

'"Raging cold wind is blowing into my room and now my light is out."

'Gone out' can be used for a light, candle, lamp, fire and incense.

Examples:

'The last candle has gone out.'

'The lighting in the room has gone out.'

'The lamp has gone out.'

etc

I hope the above examples are MORE helpful 😅 😅 😅 😅 😅 😅
