Fun with Pedantry


My co-clerk is often extremely pedantic toward humorous ends. For example, every now and then she'll answer the precise question asked despite the fact that the question clearly implies a desire for additional information. Another example was one time when I was wondering if a particular word had a double-consonant or not. I asked her if the word was spelled with one "s" or two, and she said "three," because there was an additional "s" elsewhere in the word.

Just now, she was standing by my desk holding a stapler, and making clackity-clack noises with the stapler as if it were a pair of castanets. We had the following exchange:

Her: Clackity clackity clackity clackity...
Me: What are you doing?
Her: [Holds the stapler where I can see it better.] Clackity clackity clackity clackity...

Good times.
