Do you believe it, at this age?

I was talking with someone the other day about something we both had witnessed. At one point she said "I seen it", when should have been "I saw it"! Now when you are talking with children that are below the age of, say, 12, one expects misuse of the English language once in a while. But this was an adult I was talking with!! And another thing.. what is with using the work ax instead of ask? Are you saying you want to chop me up? Were you not taught how to pronounce certain words or their meaning? It is amazing how some people do not bother to speak correctly when these same people get offended when they are not understood! Communication, which is the key to any successful relationship, be it business or personal has to start with basic skills!! There is nothing that makes one sound more stupid, at least in this persons view!! There you go!!
