English isn’t my mother tongue. Sometimes I have some problems with English and I don’t know in which topic I can post these questions, so I created one. Please help me.
I’ve read this sentence and I haven’t known what it means.
“When you read his statement that I coveted his plantation house, you can write that off to modesty more easily than stupidity, I suppose.”
What “write that off to” means? Is he saying that the statement is stupid? Or those people who believe in that are stupid?
