You're missing a coma after "asked", in either case.

I hate when I miss my coma's! It's the best rest I ever get!

And no commas should be in it either haha! Just kidding with the last comment.

I'd rather not be in a coma while deciding whether I should use commas in this sentence or not. :)

You usually do not split verbs in a sentence...Verb is" to do" in the first
Verb in second is split " to " not "do" ..Hope you can understand how I TRIED to explain that:)
..Go with the first:)

First is more correct and I just wan to say something about a different comment.
#Beatminister, you would say 'more correct' not 'correcter'
