Is this correct? My friend says it is, but I am not sure.

Enjoy life with people who makes you forget social networks

I'm not a native speaker; is this grammatically correct?

  • @wyatt The sentence on the t-shirt; "Enjoy life with people who makes you forget social networks"

Almost right.

Enjoy life with people who make you forget social networks

People is plural, and you only use makes with singular, for example

Enjoy life with someone who makes you forget social networks

  • I wonder if the mistake was intentional, perhaps for humorous effect?

  • @J.R. If you had travelled in South East Asia, you would not even consider that possibility.

    @cardinal, T-shirts with english writing are very fashionable: many are ungrammatical or use inappropriate words. For example, filipinos and koreans do not differentiate the pronunciation of the letters F and P: so people think that a T shirt saying "poxy lady" is a compliment to the wearer.
