    Check for grammatical consistency

    We say " You are a wonderful person"
    but "You, the stupid, has complicated the situation". Is the sentence correct, the verb has correct in this usage.
    thanks

    Re: Check for grammatical consistency

    You, stupid person, have ....
    You, the stupid person, have...


    Not a very polite thing to say Might be better put as "You have stupidly complicated..."
