Another think coming? Really??? I'm somehow having trouble believing the article is correct here...oh, and I've been guilty of putting an "S" on "toward" on occasion...other than that, I had no problem...

I saw a documentary on these retarded ass hicks that normal hicks are like, fuck those hicks are retarded... And they went to Taco Bell to order "fiestas". They said fiestas instead of fajitas.

Fiestas.

Fuckin' fiestas, dude.

Yeah, that one was pretty special...wasn't it?

I shared this in a writing group, and somebody posted this...if you really want entertainment, this will keep you busy for quite a while...note the suggestion that you "start reading at comment 289"...

lol When I see "I could care less" in the forums as a response to people the poster doesn't like, I always want to post in reply.

I want to say, "You could care less? How much do you care, then? Enough to reply to the person you are trying to ineptly belittle, obviously. Enough to make yourself look like a pillock, I see. And how much less could you care? Enough to shut up and sod off? Please, please do."

I always want to post it, but I never do. sunny

Some of those are just accent issues. Like 'of' instead of 'have' - people aren't pronouncing it like 'of,' they're really saying 'ave.' (just dropping the clear h). So on and so forth.

Culture and dialects are also the cause of a few others. Like toward and towards. The s is acceptable in Bristish literary markets.

A brief Google search seems to indicate that "another think coming" is in fact correct. It is the original form of the colloquial phrase aimed at someone who has a mistaken view. It comes from the old comical expression, "If that’s what you think, you’ve got another think coming."

It quite obviously should be "another thought coming." It's just bad grammar, like those jackasses who say, who would have thunk it?"

For me, it's always been "another thing coming" - that thing being a clip around the ear. "If you think you're not going to eat your vegetables, you've got another thing coming."
