I'm turning into a grammar Nazi.

I'm a tutor; I tutor the kids in Criminal Justice at my University.
---not really kids, all are either my age, one year younger, or one year older---

Twice today, within the span of ten minutes, I heard myself correcting these kids(19 and 18 year old women.. more on those two) on their grammar, in my head.

I try to avoid being pretentious, so I'm a little alarmed by the little voice in my head that constantly corrects other people when they use than rather than then, or mispronounce words like illicit(SHOUTOUT). Ah well

Back to the two girls... Lets call 'em A and B. I like 'em both; they're both really sweet people. A is from...

I'll finish this later. This library is way too cold.

If that's what a grammar Nazi is, I guess I've been one for a while. :P

I do that all the time in my head.
Unless it's my little brother or someone else in my family, then I might say something.

And I used to be really bad about when my mo would ask something of me or my siblings, I'd always in my head go "...PLEASE!!" 'cause she used to get onto us all the time about saying please. But anyways.

eh.

WHAT IS...WRONG WITH YOU?! Hehe, I have to remind myself to do that. I don't ever want to lose my inner pretentiousness! *flutter lashes*

My grammar is never good enough for me to do that. Though sometimes I do that when the person's grammar is really bad. But I wonder too much if my grammar is correct to bother much about other people's grammar.

Pokemon Diamond sounds fun.. Can the lickytongue evolve yet in that version?

Grammar
I am soooo glad that SOMEone is doing something about that grammar issue. I hate it when they say, "freshmens" and "homeworks". C'mon! You guys are in highschool! Kudos to u dilated!
