Hi Teacher,

I know, it's so funny...I got the when I went to a lawyer when I was first trying to get my residence in Canada he charged me $250.00 to tell me, "If I were in your shoes I would go back and apply from Brazil".

I told my wife, that was the highest priced I ever had to pay for an expression...LOL

I've heard many born Canadians saying "if I was..." Some thing happens with "aren't I" especially on the question tag. 

Sid.
