Joe is talking to Steve on the phone. Joe says to Steve, "Please bring your PowerPoint presentation to the meeting." Joe is at his own home; Steve is at his own home—each of whom is not at the meeting [destination] place yet. Because of this fact, shouldn't Joe have said, "Please take your PowerPoint presentation to the meeting"? Now, if Joe were already at the meeting place (not at his home) and Steve was still at home, would Joe say to Steve, "Please bring your PowerPoint presentation to the meeting" because Joe is already at the specified destination [i.e., the place where the meeting will be held]? Doesn't it matter where Joe is calling from [the location of the speaker] that dictates the proper usage of 'bring' vs. 'take'? Are the following correct, too? Dad: Take (not Bring) this package to your mom. Peter: Okay. Dad: Bring me a beer. Peter: No problem. Dad: Take (not Bring) the dog outside. Peter: No problem, Pops! (Should 'Pops' be capped here?) Dad: Bring (not Take) the dog to me, Son. (Should 'Son' be capped here?) Peter: Okay. Thank you.
