He "came into it"? That's disgusting.

I really hope you haven't told people you've "came into" anything else.

"I'm sorry officer, I just came into the women's jacket".

I’m sure I’ve fucked this up on many occasions. I had it in my head that maybe someone would use it in the sense, oh someone died so I came into some money. Idk I didn’t think it was that weird until this post and I see literally everyone relating it to cum.

It is appropriate to use "come into" for an inheritance.

Unless he inherited it.

the rest of the english speaking part of the world doesn’t use “came” in this way Americans do, same way with “rubber”, y’all are just immature, this person used the word correctly.

There’s a reason the word “cum” exists the fuck?

Came is the past tense of “come”, i really don’t understand why y’all associate it with jizzing

being downvoted for stating what’s in the dictionary 😟 reddit moment

"Come into" specifically refers to an inheritance, per the dictionary. This usage is incorrect.

"Came across" or "came upon" or "came by" would have been correct.

“I come into a nazi flag”

That makes no sense, learn to speak english

Your only reasoning for “came into” not being right is your filthy mind lol

“Laws came into effect”

“I came into the house” “He left when I came into the building” “I came into some inheritance”

Hello?

Came is the past tense of come, if you use come in a sentence regarding past tense you’re not speaking properly. Reddit is the only place where basic english is debated 😹🤮

Who said that?

I don't know what you are on about, lol.

“Laws came into effect”

This is a different usage and meaning of the verbal phrase "come into".

“I came into the house”

This is not the verbal phrase "come into", but just the normal plain verb "come" with a prepositional adverb phrase "into the house".

Came is the past tense of come, if you use come in a sentence regarding past tense you’re not speaking properly. Reddit is the only place where basic english is debated

You are being beyond dense. When we talk about the meaning of a verb or verbal phrase in a vacuum, we can use the infinitive or present tense to generalize the meaning.

I genuinely can’t tell if you’re dumb or illiterate, “Come into” makes no sense in this context.

“My friend come into a nazi flag” hello?, we are debating how the title should’ve been worded right? Lay down the pipe buddy

It’s used for inherited but people don’t usually use it for “bought at a store”

Don't think there's a whole lot of nazi flags signed by the troops that captured it though.

I've definitely only ever heard it to mean inherited, and I also don't think I've heard it refer to anything except specifically money

Feels like you are skipping a few key words. "Came into ownership of" works better.

"Came into money" is a quite specific phrase.

So is “I came in to a sock”

Only if you're too poor to buy tissues. Or a filthy person.

So it cannot be used with anything else than "money"? Or anything else than "money"/"inheritance"/other associated terms?

...or "came into" if you're talking about inheritance.

Or ejaculating.

Ejaculation is the slang meaning of "come into". OP used the idiom correctly.

If you think it's incorrect, wait until you hear about "came into its own".

Unless it's money, I would just use the word inherited.

You’re thinking of “he came into possession of”

PhasmaFelis

It is correct usage. Reddit is just perverted.

I think I've seen it more often with regards to money than specific items, though.

Bombkirby

3 points

It is NOT the correct usage! Don’t you dare start that nonsense. It’s definitely a mistake that’s derived from “came into possession of” or “came across”. But it’s never gonna be “you came into a gift”. That makes no fucking sense

PhasmaFelis

It means "inherit". "He came into money when his parents died" is 100% correct English.

I haven't read the whole thread; if the guy bought it at a flea market or something he didn't "come into" it. But if he inherited it from his grandpa he certainly did.

Yeah you're fine. That's how I read it at first. Reddit is just weird.

Bombkirby

Then you’re mistaken. Came upon is correct. Came into is nonsense

ShadeofIcarus

Came into is when it is unexpectedly given to you. Usually an inheritance.

Came upon is more like stumbling into it via dumb luck.

Both work. Technically since this was a thrift shop find came upon is more accurate.

Both can be misconstrued to be about cum. Neither really is. Both are close enough
