Thank you for deciding to read my post. Simple past of "get" is "got", and I am not trying to use it like "I have it"; I am trying to use it like "I received it." I don't see anything wrong in using "I got it" as "I received it" because the simple past of "get" is "got." I don't see how it can be wrong if I am using it to say that I have received something; strictest grammarian should not have any problem with this. Am I right or wrong? Thank you again for your help.
