My son wants to watch the children's TV show, Peg + Cat on his computer. He scrolled the mouse down to the show's folder, but when he double clicks on the folder, it does not open; a pop up menu displays instead. I wanted to tell him that the mouse is not functioning well because the right button was stuck.
- Do you informally say the mouse is busted/broken? If not, what do you say? Bear in mind the mouse still scrolls and sometimes with a few clicks 'it gets on'.
- By the way, is using 'it gets on' to mean 'it works' correct? If not what phrasal verb would you use instead?
