“You” can be quite confusing sometimes. You know, sometimes “you” means only you, and at other times “you” means more than just you. Got it?
You see, what I mean is that “you” refers both to singular and plural nouns, so it’s not always easy to be sure whether a speaker is talking only to you or to you and also to others with you if they use “you” alone in a sentence, for example.
