I've got a question about this topic. So, about the context. I've just watched a video and in the end, the author said thank you as follows:

Thank you for all the time you wasted on this video.

I wonder if instead it could or should be

Thank you for all the time you have wasted on this video.

Which is more suitable in this situation?


1 Answer 1


Both of these are grammatically correct and it just boils down to which one you choose to use.

  • i know that they're both correct, but which one is more suitable?

  • “You wasted” is better here because it’s more informal, which it should be because it’s ironic or humorous.
