Learn English – I thought “spare me with …” means “don’t bother me with the details of …”. Does it


But according to my friend I am wrong. What do you think?

Best Answer

"Spare me" can be used to refer to anything that isn't wanted.

As in, "spare me your poppycock", "spare me your pedantic ways", "spare me your grandiloquence" etc.

"Spare me" just means "let me not hear/see/experience something".
