Make no mistake. Cheezy has several, small, essentially insignificant errors scattered throughout his posts. While it's true the majority of them are split infinitives, it still shows no one is perfect.

The only thing that irritates me when it comes to grammar is when someone makes an obvious error that most children could spot. But to point out every little mistake that someone makes is pointless and causes a person to be perceived in a negative way.

(Raising hand) I've got a grammar question. When did "I seen" become a substitute for "I saw"?

I like to watch TV shows about ghost hunting, and "My Ghost Story". It is amazing how many people on those shows say "I seen". I don't know why it bothers me so much, but I develop a tick when I hear that. I'm sure that I do things to prompt ticks in others, so I'm trying not to judge. lol
