>tfw said "preface" wrong during an presentation yesterday
>always thought it was pronounced "pri-fais"

Now everyone in my college course thinks I'm a fucking moron. I didn't know that I was supposed to know everything.

It also sucks because it seems like I can't even help someone because no matter what I say gets shot down. Even if they ask for advice like this:

>"Ugh I have so much homework, how am I gonna finish it tonight?"
>try to tell him that they don't have to go out drinking and can easily get it done if they just stay home
>"Holy shit Anon, I have to be social. Sorry I'm not okay with being a weird loner like you."

>"Oh my god my boyfriend is acting like such an asshole."
>try to tell her that they should peacefully talk about their problems and try to come to a resolve
>"Lol Anon, relationships don't work that way. No wonder you're going to be forever alone."

and then they ask my why I'm so quiet

>>26206372

Why don't you guys just keep your uninformed opinions to yourselves?

It would really help you avoid this problem.

I'm not witty either and I have this problem where if someone's mad at me I get really nervous and can barely even say anything. After they told me those things I just sort of stayed quiet trying not to have a panic attack until they left me alone.
>>
>>26206781
Yeah you're actually right, which frustrates me even more since OP can't put them in their place. Ignore what I said I guess. I suppose there's no way to win.

I'm so glad I dropped out of college. Everyone was a hipster, pretentious, pseudointellectual, SJW cunt. Jesus fucking Christ I'd rather work retail for the rest of my life than spend another two years surrounded by those narcissistic morons.

It was? I always thought it was just a tomayto/tomahto thing. I usually just alternate between the two.

In any case try listening to this: https://thepiratebay.se/torrent/4547212/TTC_-_Understanding_Linguistics__The_Science_of_Language

TL;DL If anyone ever calls you a fucking moron for misspelling or mispronouncing a word, just tell them that your personal dialect is more highly evolved than the webster-inspired propaganda that the academic establishment uses to retard linguistic innovation.

You're suffering from a classic case of the spotlight effect. Everyone makes mistakes, and no one knows everyword in the dictionary.
Just move on. People likely didn't pay enough mind to it to remember it. Don't be the guy who said "yellow" in instead of "hello" and had to correct your self that one time, and avoided all human interaction because of it.

Get over it, anon. A girl in a college class did a presentation on Wimbledon. Pronounced it WHIM-BLEE-DONE the whole time. Shit happens
