Could someone please help me with this:

A special thanks to Dave Templeton for being crazy enough to bring me back here after my first stint and to Susan for putting up with me. Well, thanks to all of you for putting up with me.

My question: what does putting up with me mean (from the above sentence)?



Put up with
= tolerate. It is meant humorously in this sentence.
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
"putting up with" is a way of saying that even though a person does something annoying, inconsiderate, or any other negative word, you still stay around them and are still friends with them. So a friend that is difficult to be around during a certain activity, say sports- they always brag about being the best, may say after the fact, "Thanks for putting up with me today at the game."

Hope this helps!
Thanks its helpful
