We met back in the O'Brien's living room.

"So, where to?" I said.

"The city. There's tons of murderers there, plus one of my friends is at college there. He might be able to help. He owes me." Ben stated. I was curious to know what he owed him but it didn't seem like the time.

"I think we should do some research. Like you said Ben, there's "tons of murderers there". To many to dive in headfirst without a clue." Georgia added. They both looked at me, hunting that I was the tiebreaker.

"I....Um...." I stuttered, when suddenly, I was struck with inspiration and adrenaline.

Rae, I know you have good intentions when you correct grammar but it can be a bit insulting to the receiving end. Perhaps try wording your corrections differently?
commented Aug 31, 2016 by rae (88,560 points)
How was it in any way insulting? When I correct spelling or grammar, I tend to capitalize the rearranged or missing letters. That is just more memorable and bold to stand out to the writer. Besides, I'm practicing because I have been elected editor for encouraging words (tm), so practice makes perfect. I didn't intend to be insulting at all. However; if you want insulting, I'd be happy to give it to you.

Well, your correcting wasn't as irritating as you seemed to presume it was; however your comment about being happy to give me insulting makes me wonder if you realize that counts as an action of bullying, or perhaps if you thought about how you would feel if someone said that to you.

I meant I'm cool with whatever. I'd be pleased to give you anything out of my actions bag. (That was just an awful metaphor, don't accuse me of anything like that for associating words with bags, please)

Sorry for inturrupting, but rae, practice makes progress.

Yes, that's what they've been preaching to me for days now. IT WAS A SIMPLE STUPID CORRECTION OKAY? PLEASE PEOPLE, DO LIKE ELSA AND LET IT GO ALREADY! I'll take the answer DOWN if I have to go to that, just please LEAVE ME ALONE! And then some kids after reading this are going to be going like, "I'm going to flag this question because she was being rude to me--". Please be more mature than that. I know the majority of us are kids, but have some empathy. I'm not trying to be rude or sound like it in any way, so please I beg of you to just drop it. Thank you. I get enough of immaturity at school, so I expect at least SOME people to have some sanity.

I don't care about the correction. Dude, you need to "Make it like Elsa"
