So... i'm trying to talk to someone and they make a sentence completely unintelligable by misusing a word or two, so i wrote out the sentence the way i thought it would be and asked the person if that was what he meant. He said no, and continued on to say that his usage of a word was his own personal "style".
Well, i'm sorry to break it to you, but if your style makes you make no sense, it's more idiocy than style. I also know that this person speaks english as his native language, and has no reason to use words dramatically incorrectly to the point where you can't understand what he's trying to say.
I took the time to point out this little mistake that made his sentence's meaning unclear to me and i tried to tell him that english is a science, you can't just take words and substitute them in even though they are synonymous with the word you are taking out. The person then proceeds to verbally assault me by first calling me a "nerd" through using code (in which he used the wrong operator to declare that i was a nerd [he used '==' instead of '=']). Next, he went on to say that i was the "private school type" and that i am nothing without someone to teach me what i know. He continued to say
(i'm guessing that the double negative in the second statement means something like "without it, you are (favourite expletive here)")without someone to lecture you in life, you're worthless
without it, you ain't ****
then he told me that this conversation was useless and that he was busy downloading a tutorial, which completely places him in the ficticious genre he put me into since a tutorial is pretty much a lecture and he was completely depending on that to learn.
well.. the point of the matter is, think before you speak or you will say something stupid and make everyone think you don't deserve the spit and feces you are made out of. This person had already proven to me his lack of common sense and intelligence on at least two occasions previous.
point number 2 would definately be: don't insult someone directly, reason with them to the point where you have proven their arguements worthless and stupid. Doing it the smart way makes you look superior and them look inferior, whereas if you just insult them, it just makes you look like a load of feces.
