So I have: "It's infuriating no longer being able to tell them what I think of them." Is that grammatically correct?

I know I could use: "It's infuriating that I'm no longer able to tell them what I think of them." but is it really necessary to have that extra "I" at the start of the sentence?

    There is nothing wrong with your first sentence at all. You sound like a native speaker. For me: It's fun being able to suss that out. I might not write it but I might say it. For me: It's not fun not being able to tell you what I think. Speaking ain't writing. – Lambie Oct 31 '18 at 20:49

    @Lambie Yes, I am a native speaker, and I can't speak anything else. 😅 – Nathan Oct 31 '18 at 21:00

It's much more grammatical to say, "It's infuriating to no longer be able to tell them what I think of them." No extra I necessary.

  • That's perfect! What I originally had sounded off, I knew there had to be a way to say it without the extra I. – Nathan Oct 31 '18 at 20:39
  • Your assertion is simply not true. – Lambie Oct 31 '18 at 20:49
