I... Don't see the problem with his grammar.

Could someone point it out?

It's not supposed to be "I'm just sat here", it's supposed to be "I'm just sitting here." Does "I am just sat here" really sound good to you?

It's a general statement, the infinitive is proof that not all clauses must have a definite allegiance to a temporal tense.
The sentence is perfectly legible and breaks no major laws of grammar, if you want to be so picky I could take any number of similar mistakes you will make every day without even realising are technically incorrect.

I could do the same to you, because you probably have millions of unnoticed grammar mistakes, too. I am NOT a grammar nazi, most likely because I find them to be annoying. I only tried to tell you why it was wrong because there seems to be a fight over it. I don't really care about grammar, as much as I care about ending stupid arguments

English. Let's use it.

And - Capital letter, leading on from a segregated point a conjunctive is a perfectly acceptable way to start a sentence, that rule is only taught to us as children to simplify matters and to get children to use less of them.

I'm - The I is capitalised and the apostrophe is used correctly.

just sat here - Perfectly fine.

masturbating. - Correct tense, spelling, there is a full stop.

I honestly see nothing wrong...

"I'm" makes no sense here

"And I'M just sat here masturbating"
this is not right
'and I just sat here masturbating' OR 'and I'm just sitting here masturbating' is the correct wording

And I am just sat/sitting here masturbating. Don't be pedantic.

What part of "And I am just sat here masturbating" makes sense to you?
#96 to #94 - genericnewfag (11/27/2012) [-]
Which part of that sentence is too difficult for you to understand? Incorrect or not, it's still legible.

I have come to the conclusion that most of the people in this thread haven't met any British people.

Let me help you out fellow.
>And I'm just sat here masturbating.
Should read:
And I'm just sitting here masturbating.

I am just sat here isn't grammatically correct.
