Suppose to

0

This is the second thing that my friend who is in the university found wrong in my autobiography.  (He circled my mistakes but not what was wrong with them so I am putting them here for help thanks).  So anyway, he circled the words ‘”suppose to” in this sentence:  How am I suppose to know what to do when nobody ever gave me any instructions or training?  Just fyi- I am talking about a job that I got hired for and I started not knowing what was going on or what I was suppose to be doing!  Suppose is spelled right, I checked.

I suppose that someone thought you were supposed to already know how to do the job.  The first instance in my sentence is a verb.  The second instance is an adjective.  Here are more examples.

 

I require assistance.  (verb)

I am required to follow the rules. (adjective)

 

I suppose I will turn on the proofing tools in Word.  (verb)

That is supposed to find grammar and style errors for me. (adjective)
