But you sure can't write. Punctuation, dear boy. Did you mean:

a. I can read, you know!

b. I can read you, know!

c. I can read 'you', 'know'!

Gosh, do I have to teach you everything?!

When I first glanced at your post, I saw the words "I can read you..." and that sent a chill down my spine. Then I realised that wasn't what you meant. But the original non-punctuated phrase meant something different on first read, and needed to be re-read. I'm as guilty of bad writing as anyone else, but I think that if a sentence has to be re-read to understand its meaning, it's either bad writing or good literature. Yours, of course, must be the latter. :wink:
