Doesn't vs. Don't

Posted on Tue, Mar 8, 2011 at 11:06 AM

What the fuck is with some people using "don't" when "doesn't" is the proper word to say?! "It don't matter"; "He don't like to swim"; "She don't get along with her mom"; need I go on? Do you realize how uneducated and stupid you sound? Do you think it's cool to talk like that or something? Or are you just too lazy to use one more syllable when you're speaking? Some of you have post-secondary education, but speaking like that leads people who don't know you to think you didn't even graduate Junior High. Fuck, we learn when to use "don't" and when to use "doesn't" in a sentence in grade fucking one! Seriously, grow up and speak properly! —Don't-Doesn't Grammar Nazi
