But if you didn't mean it as an insult, then it's completely pointless to state the obvious! What if I pay you? Would you shove a can of pringles up my ass for an OtterBox? Some Trident Layers? Maybe we can watch a romantic comedy first, or a movie about Snickerdoodles. Would you do it for me then?
Shrike-"So the hell what?". Sounds a little more like you are still learning English judging by that statement. And what's with the defensive aggression? Grammar nazi, non grammar nazi. Who cares. She was just making a joke in her first comment and then being jokingly sarcastic in her second. Nobody was attacking or threatening you. So why the irrational freak-out? Quit smoking or having drug withdrawals? If so I applaud you and wish you luck. However, no reason to attack Jen. Calm down. Take deep breaths and count to ten.
She can make a comment and mean it as funny sarcasm. It doesn't have to be an insult. And if you are still learning English because it's your second language then why did you accuse her as still learning. That makes no sense. Ok. To someone who is learning English as their second language: You have to learn that everything said isn't always serious. A comment made can be sarcastic too. Sometimes it is very difficult to distinguish the two. Unfortunately there is not a "sarcasm" font. But don't get so angry. It's just FML. Everyone is here to have fun.
I find it funny how dcg1375 goes on a rant and spams the response to this comment. Obviously shrike and jen have different opinions. No need for him to step in to the disagreement and try to impress Jen by defending her. If she shoving Pringles up anyone's ass it's shrike cause at least he would take her out to a movie first.
why go on rants with paragraphs of shit trying to be a knight in shining armor for some broad that left you here to fight her battle? it's funny how you're trying to teach him a lesson and knock him down , all while stating your opinions..all because he stated his opinions. "everyone is here for fun"....ya...so you lighten up too! tf?! bitching at people for doing exactly what you yourself is doing makes no sense at all
Both are acceptable. "Snuck" is more common, in my experience. It's like "hung" and "hanged." Hung was actually added to the dictionary later, as many people thought "hanged" sounded awkward and improper.
You're right about both being acceptable. It doesn't matter whether you use snuck or sneaked. Personally I prefer "snuck". It's not the same with hang though. "Hung" is used for inanimate objects (e.g. a picture being hung on he wall) and "hanged" is used when referring to the death of a human (maybe animals too) by hanging.
I know #18, I was just saying. Though what he said about hanged and hung is wrong. Someone being hanged is a method of execution. You can never use "hung" in its place, that has a totally different use. English is weird but if you look stuff up, it's easy to learn. I go by the rule that if the older word isn't "archaic", I'll use that. But both are fine with sneaked/snuck. :))
I've been saying snuck my whole life and it is actually a word. So your boyfriend's a '******* idiot' for not knowing that both snuck and sneaked are accepted..but 'snack'? Seriously?
#103-- No, they're both acceptable. Look it up. Webster's lists both "sneaked" and "snuck" as correct. "Snack" is just wrong. And as far as being "grammatically correct" goes... Most people make grammatical mistakes all the time and don't notice. It's usually not a big deal (as seen here.) It doesn't make you a grammatically incorrect person. In my opinion, it's more important to correct mistakes that can make a meaning confusing, like with your/you're or "snack", which already has a completely unrelated meaning...
Sneaked in the UK, snuck in America, so in Australia both we can use both. You're all idiots!
