From The Killing (TV_series) :
Can I help you, sir?
Yeah, you can help me. My name's Stan Larsen. Detective Holder promised to send a car by to watch my house
I understand that completely, but my question is why "car by" ? Why do we use by in here ? Why don't we just say car?
other section :
You said you'd send a car by. My kids are terrified. What-- what the hell are you people doing about it?
