I can’t help it

Everyone has that one thing. The thing that they can’t help but be snobbish about. I hate to say it but mine is English. Well more like the right pronunciation of names. Whether I like the person or not I feel the need to correct someone if they are saying the persons name wrong. I am not sure if it is because everyone normally says my name wrong. Or if it is that teacher in middle school or argued with me for 20 minutes on how I pronounce my name. Apparently I was the one who was in the wrong. Seriously?!?!

There are lots of things that it can stem from. Yes I am trying to work on my problem. I have been doing it for so many years that is comes second nature. I know it annoys my husband to no end. So he says it wrong on purpose just to annoy me. Just a vicious circle that turns into me calling him an ass. Which he is most of the time and is partly why I love him.

I have accepted that I have this problem, and I am working on not doing it so much. And since I feel the need to do it I am finding ways to do it politely. As weird as that sounds. Then again we all have quirks we work on, but without our personal quirks would we still be us?
