Sarah you can call me anything you want (not original poster BTW), but saying mines is just plain wrong! If you know it is wrong and still use it, that IS lazy.
Saying axe instead of ask is also lazy. Lazy speach makes you sound stupid even if you are not. People have to realise that. How you speak is as important to other people's impressions of you as is the way you look. You can be wearing the finest most expensive clothes, but if you say mines or axe to me, I will never take you seriously.

Definitely a question. As for doing away with rules because English is evolving and a question mark is redundant...if we keep that up, we will all be speaking Ebonics in a few years. There are reasons for rules, and not just so people can break them.
