I've seen this quite a bit lately on Facebook - "So, I was wondering around Target and saw..." I suppose they could have been contemplating mysteries of the universe while they wandered the store, but that doesn't seem likely.

I'm seeing that, too. Something else I'm seeing more and more frequently is 'discusted ' instead of 'disgusted' . I've seen it several times this week alone.

Discusted? Frankly, that spelling is rediculous.

I don't know if this is regional, or just something I wasn't expose to previously, but several people in my life have the habit of adding "take and" to a sentence. As in "I'm going to take and do the shopping later. It drives me nuts.
