    Hi, I was wondering if guys could help me puzzle out a question apropos of usage of “can’t have somebody doing something”, particularly in the following sentences I’m going to show you. The first one is:” I can’t have you saying such rude words to him.” The another one is: ” I can’t have you speaking like that about him.” Do the two sentences correct?

    If the answer is yes, then would it be okay for us to write something like I can’t have you treating me like this or I can’t have you talking like a snob here? I’d be grateful if you could help me figure it out. Thanks.

    Best Regards.
