    What’s wrong with ‘too less’? It’s not grammatically wrong, is it?

      No. OP just wanted to vent and say "I mean wtf".

    • Microsoft / EngTier 1
      Um it’s completely wrong.

      Not grammatically wrong does not make it a correct use of English.

      It is absolutely grammatically wrong, though it's silly that OP cares.

      Oh really? I did not know this. I’m sure I have used it many times myself. Thanks to OP we learnt something here.

    Same reason Asian women say, “me love you long time” or white people say “que donde taqueria” - it isn’t their native language.

      There are a lot of white people whose native tongue is Spanish

      slang is about being creative and playful. “too less” is just shitty english, no creativity

    Too less is completely wrong. It's just as wrong as "too more". Too little is correct.
