Grammar Nazi by Anonymous26170 on Tue Dec 10, 2013 3:38 am
I'm a big grammar Nazi. I like to correct other people's grammar as well as my own, (up to a point, if it's wrong but sounds 100% correct, I'm fine with that and will even say sentences like that). If it doesn't seem like that, it's because I type everything on a tablet, which not only is it harder to type on, but also has weird glitches, (like a fairly empty spellcheck dictionary, and how it won't put a space or a comma in the 400th or something character slot in a paragraph). I wondered why recently right after wondering why I cringe and feel very strange when someone else does something I find embarrassing. Like I'll be watching TV alone and see a commercial for the next useless waste of money kids toy, and when it's geared towards children in a barney sort of way I visibly cringe as I feel my entire upper body encased in a tingly numbess for a second. Or if a child is acting incredibly immature I'll feel as if I were sitting on a stage somewhere in front of many people screaming and yelling. That last one might just be since I don't like attention, even cursory attention that you get by being someone else in the same room as a particularly noticeable event, like a child screaming or a disturbing news story. I finally put the dots together that I just feel immature whenever I hear something I consider immature (which ranges anywhere from a child acting like a child to someone near me being idealistic), and that I've always considered proper grammar a strong indication towards maturity. After that it's just another small step to get to the point that I try and speak properly to mask that feeling of immaturity, which feels remarkably similar to a lot of unwanted attention.
