- Dear Teachers,

1. When I was in big trouble, she did turn a blind eye to me. She really sucks!

- Is this natural?

Thanks very much to Teachers,

It's informal, but it's natural (to some).

Hi,

What Philip is suggesting is that you need to be careful about using the expression someone/something sucks. It's commonly said, but there are plenty of people who consider it vulgar because it has a sexual connotation.

There's nothing in the context to warrant the use of the emphatic did turn. I'd say she turned a blind eye ...

I just didn't feel like preaching earlier this morning. Thanks for taking over, Clive.
