EXPRESSIONS WITH HAVE-2: meaning and examples

Good morning everyone. Today we continue our look at expressions with the verb have.

Today's expression is: To have somebody on (informal)

Meaning: to try to make somebody believe something that is not true, usually as a joke.

Example 1:
You didn't really tell her that you're single did you? You're having me on, aren't you? What will she say when she finds out that you have a wife and two children?

Example 2:
I don't believe anything he says. He's constantly having me on.
