Why Can't People Use Seen/Saw Or Run/Ran Correctly

So many people around me say "I seen you yesterday". Doesn't any one know they should say "I saw you yesterday"? It makes one sound red-neck. Another one is when people say something like "We have not ran those parts yet" when it should be "We have not run those parts yet". Again sounds ingnant. Rant over. 😜. What happened to common english?

I always enjoyed the differences in the work meanings. What someone from the uk might say vs what we say.ny.

My uk friend had a locally based radio show, here in Utah. I loved calling in and telling him I was going to drive over and kick him in the fanny...very different meaning to what he was familiar with.

Try asking to 'bum a ***' in some states and you'll be in the slammer!
