Agreeing

Post by alexandrask » Wed Jan 17, 2018 7:09 am

How would you express agreeing with the following statement: I USED TO BE SHY WHEN I WAS A KID.
Some of my colleagues think it should by SO WAS I. but I think it should be SO DID I.

Strictly speaking 'did' (relating to verb 'used') is correct.
