    Were or was?

    Which of the following is correct?

    "I didn't get the job so I thought something was wrong with me."

    "I didn't get the job so I thought something were wrong with me."

    (I'm trying to say that there wasn't anything wrong with me.)

    Thanks in advance :)

    Re: Were or was?

    SV agreement means "something" is singular 3rd person, "was" is singular 3rd person, something was.

    Which of the following is correct?
    This one:
    I didn't get the job, (comma here) so I thought something was wrong with me.
    "so" is a coordinating conjunction that links two independent clauses. The ones we have here are not short clauses. A comma would not come amiss.
