I seen...

I swear, every time I see someone post "I seen" on their Facebook page, I want to punch them.

These people aren't high school children, they are college graduates, a few of them are even medical and law professionals.

As a professional person working in a career that requires proper English and grammar, you would think that these people would at least use the word see/seen/saw in proper context.

I make grammatical errors constantly, especially when it comes to punctuation placement. However, terms like see/seen/saw, there/their/they're, etc. is grade school English and these are college graduates.

FTR: Before anyone asks, no I'm not a college graduate yet. I'm currently in school.

I hate that, too. I also HATE when people use an instead of and.

Whenever I see someone say that I think of the e-card that says "I'm just going to assume you have never seen the inside of a dictionary" or something to that effect!

I made very common mistakes. I have dyslexia and to me it will look right but when I look at it later it we will like that. I know we are human and make mistakes and don't worry about it. I know they mean. So no big deal.
