Mensagem:  Well... I'm not so sure about that. Once I was talking to an american friend and I said "...I was sat..." and he couldn't understand. He told me the right way to tell that would be "I was sitting". I got confused and explained him it isn't the same way as in portuguese. Then he told me: if you say "I was sat", some people can think you are saying that you are sad... not sitting". All the best.
