While there is a limit before communication breaks down, people break the rules of the English language every day.
The way we speak while hanging out with your friends is certainly
different from what we would write in a college essay.

I am not saying we should just ignore all the rules; I just saying that
in casual conversation, we can get away with it a little bit.  Okrand
even mentions such in the books.  I don't have the quotes handy and I
am running late for work.
