NOT AT ALL: meaning and examples

Good morning, Yesterday we learned the difference between the words NO and NOT. Today we are going to look at an expression using one of these words. Today's expression is: not at all Meaning 1: It is a polite reply to thank you. It means the same as you're welcome. Example 1 Alicia: Thank you for looking after my plants while I was away, Jill. I really appreciate it. Jill: Not at all. Since you live so close to me, it was really not a problem. Meaning 2: To emphasize a negative statement. Example 2 I am not at all surprised that Greg failed his driving test. His hand-foot coordination is very poor! Example 3 This job is not at all what I thought it would be. I was expecting something a little more exciting, or at least challenging, and I have to say that the things I do are quite repetitive. Tomorrow we will finish the week with an expression related to NO. Please post any questions about today's Daily Vitamin in the Daily Vitamin Plus! forum section on our website.
