"Should of" (a rant) 2012-02-15 21:53:53 Reply

You've probably seen people use this before. Now, you think it'd be an uncommon or rare occurrence, but in reality, it's too damn common. So much so that they no longer realize that they're dismantling proper sentence structure very slowly, and people who correctly word their phrases with "should have" are becoming less common, or maybe even extinct on the internet as we know it.

So you people should have realized that "should of" is not a replacement for "should have/should've".

TL;DR: "Should of" is not the correct wording, "should have" is.

When I hear people say "Should of" my mind just processes it as "Should've" because they sound exactly alike.

I knew I SHOULD HAVE asked Drake how his Video-Falconry shirt is. He's the only dummy who is active on this website that bought one.

My friend's little brother brought home a note from some girl from his school.

In this note, she showed complete conversion of the words "aww" and "all"

Unedited quotes: "all dang fo reel?" and "aw rite den"

So then I murdered both of them.

What saddens me is that I live in a city where everyone speaks Spanish and the most English most people know is "fuck" and "bitch" (and they think they're cool when they say it), and I have met some people from English speaking countries saying "should of" instead of "should've", "you're" instead of "your", and "by" instead of "buy".

But yeah, I'm a bit of a grammar fanatic, so "should of" doesn't get past me any time soon.

Hey man, rants don't have to be extraordinarily long. It's not like I'm ranting about U.S. politics or anything.

It doesn't really change the sentence, and there are much more important common grammatical issues than that.

I dunno, I think of forum posts as casual conversation unless you're involved in a debate or making an informative article. It's not IM, but common mistakes like "should of" can really just be glanced over, I don't even notice small stuff like that when I read unless I'm looking for that.

In other words, you are a fucky fuck fuck, please fuck off and go fuck yourself.

Language is fluid, it changes, that's why we're not all speaking Latin.
In Shakespeare's day they didn't even have standardised spelling.

Man, the other day my friend asked me for some cash so I gave him a ten, but I should of given him a five. I mean, I don't care if my friends pay me back or not, but I'm a penny-pincher, something I should of changed a long time ago, ya know?

It changes quite a bit, actually. "Should of" is grammatically incorrect; as a phrase, it's meaningless.

Today someone said to me "I jerked off my cock to some hot porn".

Still to this day I don't understand. I can vaguely gather something about a very hot rooster but the rest is lost.

Cause people are retarded and never stop to think about what they're saying. When they say "should've" out loud, it sounds like should of, so that's what they start saying, not realize that it makes no sense at all.
Same with people saying "it's a doggy dog world"

I only clicked on this to insult you, but I realized that you were just ranting. Good.

Also, I think retards today get it wrong because verbally when we say "should've" it sounds like "should of" so those degenerates are confusing them.

Oh, and all the people here saying "oh, it doesn't change the sentence" or "it's part of languages evolving" or whatever are the tards that write it like that. In modern English, it is structured like that. Should have. You don't say "I should of this".


This is my signature. It is a nice signature.
