Grammatically Correct

Post by Hellcat » Mon Mar 26, 2018 2:40 am

You look like a smart, capable person, let me ask you something. When you were small, and people asked you what or who you wanted to be, how did you answer exactly? Speak truthfully.

Every single wish I've ever granted has always been said in past tense. The client starts with "I wish I was..." which leaves the potential for dubious wish parameters. It's never, 'I wish to be..." If you want to be famous, say you want 'to be', not that you 'were' or 'was'.

It's not my fault they end up dead shortly after with grammar like that.

Well, a punishment should fit the crime, and there's nothing as horrific as crimes against English.
