Right or wrong

Filed under: Writing

“I hate that.”

“What?”

“That way you correct me when I’m talking.”

“I’m not correcting you, I just don’t want you to be wrong. I don’t want you to sound foolish in front of someone else while you’re talking to them by saying the wrong thing.”

“I think that you’re more interested in being right than you are for my being wrong and having a faux pas.”

“No, you’re wrong.”

“See? Just like that.”

“Like what?”

“You just corrected me again while I was talking.”

“No I didn’t. I was just saying that you were wrong in saying that I was correcting you. That’s not correcting you.”

“Every time I open my mouth you either contractdict me or insult me.”

“No I don’t, you stupid jerk.”
