The other day I was in the grocery store when I distinctly heard a woman declare, “I should (pause) of gotten a salad.”
Should of is the equivalent of fingernails on the chalkboard for English teachers.
I believe the person meant to say, “I should’ve made a better lunch choice instead of opting for these nasty, greasy chicken wings.”
There is no such thing as should of.
And believe me, it took all of my self-restraint from correcting Mrs. Disgruntled Chicken Wing Eater.
Anyway, I am in love with this video. There must be something wrong with me.
Hubby walked out of the room as I tried to show it to him.
Am i the only person who cares that folks dont seem 2 no how 2 rite or speak proper any moor?
Do you have a grammar pet peeve? What is it?
