What ever happened to good grammar?

Am I just an old fogey but what ever happened to proper English? "Me and him" is not proper grammar. It should be "he and I".

  • What happened to it? It went right out the window with proper spelling and caring about how one is perceived.

  • I have real issues with grammar and spelling actually. I am the go-to gal at work when it comes to these things.

  • It's laziness. Some people just don't take the time to practice good grammar, I guess. You can probably attribute some of it to the extreme amounts of text messaging going on today also. And don't worry, you're not the only old fogey out there, I'm right there with you...LOL

  • There has never been absolute, complete, proper grammar in this world. Why bother?

  • I guess texting has really relaxed spelling and grammar to an all time low.

  • I text a lot, but I refuse to use the shorthand and the abbreviations and such. My texts are always really long as far as characters because I won't shorten them.

  • Good for you.Honestly, most people get also intimidated and tell me to stop using big words. Family that is will state that. It is sad indeed to have to text down to make everyone happy and also speed things up as usual. Ugh.....
