    This just didn't sound right.

    Should it be, 'I didn't know you're not allowed to eat and drink in the classroom' or 'I didn't know you weren't allowed to eat and drink in the classroom' ?

    Any thoughts?

    Re: This just didn't sound right.

    They are both correct and mean the same, except that the second version refers specifically to the past.
