50 Mistreated Words and Desecrated Phrases: You’re suppose to know better.

Suppose someone tosses out this desecrated phrase. How are you supposed to react? (Yes, this is something we were supposed to learn in grammar school.)

OK, I suppose “You’re s’pose to” would be even worse.

Still, when a certain level of intention or expectation is attached to your response or responsibility, people suppose you will believe or act in a certain way. They suppose you will do what you are supposed to do (at least, in their eyes).

Simply put, you’re supposed to know better. (C’mon. You knew that was coming.)
