    Thieve

    Hi guys,

    "I don't have any problem in being a thieve", does it also mean, "In becoming a thieve"?

    Re: Thieve

    The correct spelling is thief for singular and thieves for plural. ;) Being doesn't necessarily mean becoming, ​unless it is implied by the surrounding context. ;)

    Re: Thieve

    I don't have any problem being a thief.
    I don't have any problem with being a thief.

    Both of them suggest you are already a thief and you are quite happy with your life choice.

    I don't have any problem in ... is incorrect.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
