Assunto:  Proverbs- which one?
 
Mensagem: 

Hi folks,

I'm studying proverbs by myself and there is an exercise which is troubling me. It goes like this:
A- Say Kate. Are you enjoying Mrs. Kramer's classes?
B- Not really. You know, I don't feel very comfortable most of the time.
A- I already know you do but __________________________.
B- Yeah, you're right. By the way, we're traveling for a competition in two months.

Q1- Can I say: "I already know you do" or should I say "I already know you don't"?
Q2- Which proverb can I use after but?
a- Don't burn your bridges behind you
b- O ne person's meat is another one's poison.
c- I can use both proverbs.

Thanks for your help.
