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.)
