    have been all been

    What does it mean: "have been all been"?
    Examples: "We have been all been thinking about for a while now", "The company and staff have been all been incredibly helpful".
    Why "been" was used twice?

    Re: have been all been

    It is not correct.

    "We have been all been thinking about it for a while now."

    "The company and staff have been all been incredibly helpful."
