My Nazi Tendencies Exposed

Someone kindly posted my TSA cigar cutter story in a Facebook group for cigar fans.

One guy responded, scoffing that I was as a “self-interest hack.”

I pointed out that he should have written “self-interested hack.”

So he denounced me as a “grammar nazi.”

I kindly noted that “Nazi” should be capitalized.

He retorted that that term was not worthy of capitalization.

My hunch is that this guy doesn’t make a living as a copy editor.

Lots of fun comments on this hubbub on this Facebook thread
