Mistakes

I can correct my brother's spelling/grammar/factual mistakes in public and he's cool with that (although he doesn't always correct me in public).  When I was a kid, I was even told that I am allowed to correct my teachers if/when they're wrong.

Having grown up with people like that, I took the liberty to correct people when I thought they were wrong.  Not many people took it well, especially when they were not close friends with me.  I learned from my experiences and now I don't always say it when I find something wrong.  I mostly assume that they don't care if they are right or wrong; they just want to say what they think/feel.

But I really wish everyone were like my brother.  I also wish everyone told me when they thought I was wrong.
