1. Quote - Listen to the quote and guess what the slang means.

“I’d just thank the people out there who have been with my up-and-down career and supported me and stuck with me all these years. I mean, they’re my boss. That’s what keeps me working.”
- Johnny Depp, actor, talking about his fans.


1. Definition - Study the definition.

supported me no matter what the circumstances; supported me during good times and bad times; was true and faithful to me; never gave up on me; never let me down

2. Use - Learn how the slang is used.

You can use “stuck with me” to describe a situation in which someone has supported you unconditionally. If there’s a person who has been your friend and done his/her best to support you no matter what has happened in your life, then you could say that the person has “stuck with you” through the good times and bad. Hopefully, your parents and friends will always “stick with you.”
The term can also be used to describe a frustrating situation. For example, if you get really angry at your father, you might tell him how much you dislike him. He might say something like, “I’m sorry you’re so mad at me, but the truth is, you’re stuck with me. We’re stuck with each other. We will be father and daughter forever.”


1. Examples - Hear some example sentences.

””I love Karen. She’s one of the most amazing people I’ve ever met. No matter what’s happened in my life, she’s always stuck with me and been totally supportive.”“

””I’ve been through some really difficult things the past three months. My mother died of cancer and my brother has been very sick as well. I’m glad my father and I have such a good relationship. We’re really sticking together during these hard times.”“

””When things are going bad, you can really tell who your true friends are. The people that stick with you during the bad times are the people who will always be there for you.”“

””I know things are going really bad right now, but if you stick with me I’m sure they’ll get better. We just need to have confidence in each other, and we’ll make our lives wonderful again.”“
