Assunto:  attitude - 4 Dale or other Americans
 
Mensagem: 

I can understand the confusion.

 

"I like his attitude." = I like how he thinks positively.

"He has a great attitude." = He is confident, cheerful, positive, etc.

 

"He came in here with an attitude." = He came here angry, hostile, arrogant, etc.

"Don't give me any of your attitude." = Shut up.  I don't want to hear your hostile remarks.
