I met a kind person

As far as I know:

subject = I; met = verb; But seems like "kind person" is a direct object. Is there no indirect object?

  • I met him an hour prior. – Blessed Geek May 7 '14 at 3:06

You are correct. There is no indirect object. The verb to meet does not lend itself to an indirect object. Here is simple example of the indirect object. I give you food. Food is the direct object and you is the indirect object.
