My wife's job is a Meeting Planner, which means she travels all over the
country (and out of the country) to plan and run meetings.
People often say ``Wow, you *get* to go to all of those places.''
To which she responds ``No, I've *got* to go to all of those places.''
The poster complains that ``You've *got* to drop into C to do certain things''.
To which I respond, ``No, you *get* to drop into C to do certain things''.
People hate what they hate, and they like what they like, and it is
foolish to argue about it. (On the other hand, I would entertain
an airtight argument why *nobody* should like liver...)
