I *know* that I *hear* it a lot. People may say anything. This is a
*written* example. I see examples in dialogs in novels and such. But, IME,
finding something like this written in the wild is not common. Of course,
YMMV.

And it's also true, nowadays, that people - even writers for "classy"
publications like the New Yorker and the NYT - may write and publish any
damned thing at all, too.

Youneverknow.
