Mensagem:  I'm in doubt about the use of MUST. I know it is used to express an order, obligation, to suppose something, as synonym of "have to". But when I whatch to TV series I often hear some uses that I don't understand. For example:
"You must call me when you get home. I'd like to talk to you."
While chating: "Now you must tell me about yourself".
It doesn't seem to be an order/obligation, in such contexts.
So why is "must" used in these situations?
