I must have been ‘hung up’

Is it time to give up? Are people in my field — the world of letters, spelling, punctuation and word choices a bit too “hung up”?

I use “hung up” because a Highlands student once gave me that label as I returned assignments with a circled misspelling. That brought on a remark from a student, Angie, who said she “just knew” I would flag her word, “aggravated,” possibly “just to be mean.”
