I would like to thank my colleague Paul* for allowing the following conversation to take place at work last week:
Paul: “For pity’s sake, Chris, sometimes I wish you’d give it a rest with your stupid pedanticism.”
Me: (pause) “I think you’ll find the word is pedantry.”
Mwahahahaha! Thanks Paul, you really made my day.
* I should probably point out that Paul is very smart and amusing, and not a retard at all, unlike some others that will remain nameless. He also doesn’t read this blog, so I am not just saying that! I just like to be fair.
