    In this case there are other meanings as well. To be taken is also to be fooled or to be robbed.

    To be taken for a ride — to be brought along on a ruse.

    To be taken for all he was worth — to be robbed of everything he owned.

    To be taken for a fool — to be misunderstood as a naive person.

    Very fun — jim

      Thanks Jim!!
      Most of my posts are based on expressions that have a correspondent in Portuguese. That was my main idea when I created the blog. Also everyday words that we don’t learn at languange schools like “tile” etc..
      About your examples, I am writing them down.
