    Thank you David. Is it lazy speach.

    I believe so....

    pascal

    Why is that? What other forms can i use to replace this one?

    I live off of Elm St. (Thats not right)

    PEOPLELOVER

    NO IT IS NOT EVEN CORRECT. RIGHT DESCRIBES A DIRECTION. WE WENT "RIGHT" INTO THE ROOM SHOULD BE WE WENT INTO THE ROOM UNLESS YOU CHANGED DIRECTION TO THE RIGHT.

    Depnds on where you are from???

    Yes you use " I got off "THE"... The next word after off should be the , an, a etc.. b/c the next word is going to be a nown.

    it is bad grammar. You don't say 'I got up off of the chair' Instead 'I got up off the chair'

    I was once told to off of..I think that's what it was..
