Communication Tip #5
Think before using GET or GOT. The correct word might be HAVE, HAS or HAD.
- Not: “Do you GOT your gloves?”
- Correct: “Do you HAVE your gloves?
Also, using HAVE or HAS as helping words doesn’t dignify the faux pas.
- Not: He’s got three sisters. (The “he’s” means he has, so you’re saying, “He has got three sisters.)
- Correct: “He has three sisters.”
Do you GET this? Do you HAVE the concept? (Both are correct.)
