RabbitWho wrote:"What, us sat in the car?" Instead of "What, us sitting in the car?" and that was interesting. Certainly an English thing?
Sounds like "sit" is being interpreted transitively, so like someone else sat us down in the car. If you replace it with other, more conventional transitive verbs, it doesn't sound wrong to me: "What's great? Us driven around in a car?"
And recently my mom said (about grass) "When we went away there was a lot grew"
When I ran to get a pen and write it down she realized something must be odd and tried to correct it by saying "When we were gone away there was a lot grew."
At first, this just sounds like an elided "that", but her change is more difficult to explain.
Unless stated otherwise, I do not care
whether a statement, by itself, constitutes a persuasive political argument. I care whether it's true.
