OP, "I should of" sounds just like "I should've" (when said aloud), which is grammatically correct. You should've just made her feel like the cunt she is. I would've.

24, there's a chance that since they were arguing that he might have separated his words more like, "I. SHOULD. OF." in which case it would have been more noticeable, but that doesn't really mean that the girl should have flipped. In verbal conversation, usually you can let the little things slide.

@101, that's Nazi with a capital N. :3 I feel sorry for people who make a big fuss about words and stuff. If that's what you gotta stoop to to make yourself feel clever...

Problem with that being that she would continue the fight simply because he corrected her... Some women have a hard time accepting being wrong, but have no problem pointing out when others are

***LOL. Sorry, OP, but even though I'm not a Grammar Nazi most of the time, if you can't even use proper grammar while writing an FML about being insulted for not using proper grammar, then you clearly deserved it.*** Also, where do you find an issue in the original post's grammatical structure?

See, I can hear a distinct difference between "should of" and "should've." I'm not saying that OP's girlfriend should have called him stupid, but they are quite different.

Maybe 2 is right though. It's never a good thing when someone degrades/puts you down/makes you feel bad. Assuming this happens a lot. Every good relationship requires respect, or it IS NOT worth it.

I agree with 39, while a little ribbing and teasing is allowed, outright mockery of a person (to their face, no less!) is so rude and disrespectful!

I just say here for about five minutes saying "should of" and "should've" out loud and they really do sound exactly the same. The girlfriend sounds like the kind of person who always has to be right even when she's not.

I had trouble figuring out what he did wrong. "I should of" is used all the time by millions of people. I am guessing she was grasping for straws. "I should have" is not a big enough deal to throw a fit over.

16- The girlfriend was probably expecting him to say "should have". That's the only way I can think of that would've caused her to flip out about it.

16 - 'should of' is pronounced 'should ov' but 'should've' is pronounced 'should ugh-v'. Though really, it takes no extra effort to say 'should have' and a lot of people autocorrect and pronounce 'should've' as 'should have' anyway as, after all, we only abbreviate things to make them quicker/easier to say and there's not much difference between the two.

Some people have incredibly high levels of hearing. My grandmother could hear me listening to music on my iPod on the earbuds (volume 60%) whilst I was upstairs, and she was downstairs. I have no doubt that some people can hear the difference in should of and should've, especially when there's a slight pause in should of as opposed to should've being mashed into one.
