Your condition is wrong. if "y" or "Y" == sc: This is always True because "y" is evaluated as True (non-empty string). To fix it use another comparison operator like: if "y" == sc or "Y" == sc: or you can simplify like this: if sc in "yY":

if "y" or "Y"== enable_spaces: should be if "y" == enable_spaces or "Y" == enable_spaces: or if you are willing to lowercase before checking, if enable_spaces.lower() == "y":

I'm starting to see now thank you :) I like some of the option- I guess I forgot to be explicit with the if statement
