    I think you shouldn't have

    Hello,

    I'm not sure if (1) is acceptable:

    (1) I think you shouldn't have done that.
    (2) I don't think you should have done that.

    Does (1) sound fine to a native speaker's ears?

    Thank you.

    #1 is not incorrect, but #2 is what we normally say.
