@AlanF_US

What does this sentence exactly means?

I'll come to pick you up from work?
I'll cause you to lose your job?
I'll talk your boss into giving you a few days off work?
Or something totally different?

It means "I'll make it so that you are freed from an obligation to work." So the third ("I'll talk your boss into giving you a few days off work") would fit.

That's cool :-) This means that my "English guessdar" still has a good "guessing range" :-)
