    And fraze.it didn't even find the sentence where Betty used it.

    Where did you encounter it, Cherry?

    See above. You must capitalise the word "I" every time you write/type it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It is in dictionaries, but it sounds like a mistake to me. I won't be adopting it.
