I love it when no one corrects me. That way I can keep embarrassing myself in front of larger and larger groups of people.

Bullshiat. There's gotta at least be grass on the field before I play ball.

I find your argument shallow and pedantic.
 
2013-12-02 05:53:29 PM
I'm not pedantic, nit-picky or fastidious.  I'm punctilious  Get it right!

The word "actually" is probably the most abused and unnecessarily used in the English language nowadays. It drives me nuts to hear people using it in every second sentence they speak.

99% of the time removing the word "actually" has no effect on the meaning of a sentence.

Whenever you feel the urge to use it, don't.

The young designer responsible for our organization's holiday greeting message to clients wrote, "Happy Holiday's."

Good thing no jerk ever made a point of correcting her about the use of apostrophes in an informal Internet discussion forum. Better for her to make a mistake like that on an important, and highly visible, professional project.

Stop saying stupid incorrect shat, and you magically stop being corrected all the time. True story.

The day it socially becomes a bigger faux pas to spread misinformation, than it is to correct it, will be the best day the world has ever seen.

Myers Briggs is Jungian bullshiat with no empirical support that has been completely replaced as a theory of personality by the Big Five.

Well there you have it, people who are wrong are now a protected class. You are no longer allowed to bruise the fragile egos of people who are to lazy to get their facts straight or present an argument as to why they are actually right.
 
2013-12-02 06:10:45 PM
If you want to be taken seriously, then stop making those obvious, avoidable mistakes, and I wont have to point them out to you all the time. I welcome any constructive criticism anyone can give me. It betters me and lends credibility to my position. It's not a personal attack. I just think if you spent 12 years in school to learn how to read, write, and speak English, then you should be using those skills.

I admit I tend to be something of a pedant, and I have a smartass streak a mile wide.  I also assume that people are generally as curious and inquisitive about things as I am, even though by now I've realized on an intellectual (but not gut) level that this often isn't the case.  These tendencies sometimes intersect and cause me to be an asshole without even realizing it.

Nyunh, unh.  It's actually closer to 95.33%--you forgot the actuarials who actually use 'actual' in the proper context.  So there!

You'd sure think so.  I get by.

Eh, I usually don't bother correcting people, unless they're being a giant asshole AND are wrong about something.

Honest mistakes about unimportant shiat I usually just let go right on by. In the long run, most people don't like being told they're wrong about anything.

Should they be told? Sure. But I don't have the time or energy to do it most of the time.

My mother is a Republican, Fox News-loving Jesus freak, so she says ridiculous shiat all the time. If I corrected every dumb thing she said, she'd never speak to me.
