  1. (파트너가 화난이유를 알려고할때) “너 지금 화난거 어제 내가 말한 코멘트 때문이야?”
  2. (회사를 소개할때) ”저희 컴패니는 교육과 관련이 많습니다”
  3. (“너 혹시 너 니 여자친구때문에 그래? 라는것에 대한 답변): “게는 이거랑 아무런 상관없어요”

1) 엄청 자주쓰이는 표현이니 각별히 공을들여 외우시길.
2) 직역을 하려고하면 말이 안되니, 그냥 외우라
3) 두가지버전이있다.  have SOMETHING to do with something와 have to do with something, 즉 something을 써도 되고 안써도된다. 둘다 맞는 표현이다
4) 상관없다는것을 표현하려면, have NOTHING to do with it.
