Assunto:  pull you up or put you up?
 
Mensagem: 

Deivis, we need more stories like that told around here!

BTW what do you mean by "pulling" visitors "up" in Suzano-SP? You mean you'd put them up [at your house]--not pull them up, don't you?

Still, a story like that makes the reader sing, makes the reader love, and makes the reader believe in his/her God more.

 

     I still remember last year when I pulled an/put an American up for one month. I mean, I took him in not because he didn't have any place to go neither he asked me to. I did that for we were already friends and I wanted to expose myself more to real English. Anyway, It's nearly one year that I've been saying pull up in this context insteady of put up since I heard an native saying it (I'm positive). However, I have just done a reasearch on this both phrasal verbs to find out you are 100% right. What's getting me confused, though; is why did he say it?
