I was at the public library, doing some work I had to do for the university. There was a young librarian (or librarian's helper?) on the phone, telling the library patron at the other end of the line that the book she had ordered "has came in." I almost went over and told her about the principal parts of the verb "come," but I refrained. I thought it must have been a terrible one-time slip-up on her part, and anyway it wasn't my business to get involved. But the librarian (or librarian's helper) must have had a list of patrons to call and repeated over and over again on the phone to each patron that the book the patron had ordered "has came in." Strange. Are there really people who talk like that? Or was it an anomaly?culcha
