    "Would of"

    Hi peeps,
    Seems like a few people write "would, could, should" + "of". That's grammatically incorrect.

    It should be "should have", just FYI , not "should of".

    Thanks!

    Oh Jeez that makes me cringe.

    And 'I seen'.

    Should be 'I have seen' or 'I've seen' or 'I saw'.

    'I have seen a few Bobcats running down the street.
    They were quite beautiful!'

    'I've seen things you people wouldn't believe'.

    'I saw a Bison standing on the side of the road'.

    Also 'would've', 'could've' and 'should've' are correct.

    I can see why people make the mistake though - when speaking it sounds like "would of." Still annoys me when I see it written though
