      That is what it means but most places people say "run over me".  A family story mom always told about a German husband of a cousin of my Dad's coming in the house with a torn sleeve and told his wife, "Mama, I broke my shirt!"  Those sort of literal translations that stay around.

      Run me over?  LOL!  What does that mean other than being hit and flattened by a moving vehicle, animal or person?  I've never heard another meaning for that phrase. 
       
      Nan

      Sorry "Landskroune" means Crownland.  My American English brain forgets to invert those German things.
       
      "Run me over" is one of those phrases we still use around here because of the strong German ancestry in the area.
