Asked by Tim

What is an example of pedantic, without actually using the word?

Without using the word pedantic in writing, you may get something like this: Every time it was my sister’s and I’s turn to wash the dishes, I got frustrated. We couldn’t just clean the dishes for our parents quickly. She had to check over every detail, looking for any blemish or mark that might still be on the plates and glasses. We wouldn’t leave the kitchen until she was satisfied that every dish was spotless!
