Grammar

RE: Grammar
I often have that urge, but I am talking to so many people with bad grammar that I just adapt and let mine go to hell now. It feels better.

Besides, probably half of the people I talk to have English as a second language. It always irks me to see them corrected impolitely by someone who doesn't even speak a second language.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
