    It is incorrect to follow the auxiliary verb "do" (and its other forms) with an inflected verb form (such as "gets"). One must use the bare infinitive form (get).

    Please give your threads meaningful titles. I was about to delete this as a duplicate.

    'Get or gets' would have been a good title or this thread.
