...and in their pomposity, get basic grammar wrong.

I could copy+paste this entire email for your amusement, but I won't, because I'm not quite that bitchy today.

"For our PCC meeting part of the evening I included the only apologies that had been received either by myself or <named person>, as chair of that meeting. "

No, pompous secretary, yourself didn't receive the apologies, you received apologies.

It doesn't help my plight that I objected to this man being secretary in the first place because of his misplaced arrogance!

toooo hard.
he used to be a teacher, too, and he's obsessed with pedantry!

I fucking hate the incorrect use of the reflexive pronoun and I am generally not a pedant.

Yes, it really pisses myself off too.
