'Supposed to be' can also be used to talk about what is arranged, intended or expected. It is a bit like 'should'.

  • I'm supposed to get to work by 8.
  • John is supposed to turn off all the lights when he leaves.
  • I'm supposed to pay my rent on the first of the month.
  • It's not supposed to be here.

  • I'm supposed to be there before 8 but I'm often late.
  • You were supposed to phone me.
  • I'm supposed to be getting on a plane to Tokyo at this very minute.

  • You're not supposed to smoke in here.

  • There's nobody in reception to let our visitors in. Suppose I sit there until somebody comes?
  • I'm going to ask him for a pay increase. ~ Suppose he said 'no'? What would you do?
