It's a male character saying thing this


"Don't get a head start, first of all, there is a proper order of doing things" (?)

Is すんな = the negative imperative するな?

Is ってもんがあるだろ = というものがあるだろ?


There is a level of "slang"-iness being used in this sentence. Allow me to rewrite in a way that might be more clear:


すんな < するな < しないで

もん < もの

だろ < だろう

Also, as an aside:

「順序」ってもの = "A thing called an order"

    Turning するな into しないで is too much. するな is already perfectly "standard" and you don't have to change it into a much milder request.

  • I know that するな is a standard expression. I thought it resourceful for those who browse the question and haven't learned this expression yet
