    I gave a bunch of samples to my friend. I say: You do what you what with the sample

    I gave a bunch of samples to my friend. I say:

    You do what you want with the samples I gave you.

    VS

    You do what you want with the samples I've given you.

    Are both okay?

    The first is clearly grammatically wrong, as I think you already knew.

    I don't know what the post said before, but they both seem OK now.

    Batman, it is bad manners and not acceptable to edit a post after a member has commented on it.

    Hello,

    Isn't wrong.
    Why the first sentence is wrong?

    We don't know what sentence 1 said originally because it has been edited since post #2 was written. Now, post #1 contains two grammatically correct sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Batman, it is bad manners and not acceptable to edit a post after a member has commented on it.

    The real crime is that it makes it impossible for other students to learn from the thread.
