Poor kid ain't got no chance.
Okay that hurt me a little to write.
Just say NO to double negatives! Please.
A double negative is the nonstandard usage of two negatives used in the same sentence so that they cancel each other and create a positive. In Shakespeare's day, double negatives were considered emphatic, but today, they are considered grammar mistakes.
I also consider them the mark of an uneducated speaker.
Sorry babe but you can't get by on those good looks all your life.
A proper education will take you farther and get you more respect.
