You Know You're a Grammar Nazi When....

I decided to have a little fun. Everyone who gets this story should post IN PROPER GRAMMAR ten ways to know you're a grammar nazi.

Chapter 7

Yali / Kalamata

1. You're making a quiz, and, in your haste, you forget to do that triple-spelling-and-grammar-check, so when you finally do take the quiz, you catch your mistake and lament for hours that your deadline to change it is up.

2. You take the time to admire people for their penmanship.

3. You feel cultured and elegant when an American is intimidated by your proper use of the English language ... especially if you yourself have never even set foot in an English speaking country.

4. You laugh with impish glee when a journalist confuses two homographs/homonyms.

5. You go nuts looking over the first page of your first grade sibling's homework.

6. You dare someone to read "hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia" and "hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia" in one breath, and then rattle it off to them like it's nothing when their expression goes blank.

7. You go crazy when someone sends you a message and the subject is, "heeeeeeeeeeeyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

8. You also go crazy when someone uses more than three dots in a sentence.

9. You are automatically interested in whatever it is a cultured, refined Englishman on TV has to say ... even if what you're watching turns out to be some boring documentary.

10. You feel completely stupid at having been caught spelling something wrong by a non-Grammar Nazi.
