Carol Blymire is an adjunct professor of public relations and journalism at Georgetown University. Her Twitter profile describes her as a “communications and public policy executive, branding consultant, professor, writer” and “Time Magazine’s Person of the Year in 2006.”
In a series of tweets on July 12, 2019, Blymire recounted a story she overheard of a millennial “in her late 20s” in Washington, DC, getting feedback on something she had written from her boss, who is also female:
Indeed, the “hampster” millennial is far from being unique. About 15 years ago, an undergraduate student demanded to know why I gave his midterm essay exam a B- grade (I actually was being generous). I explained to him that I had difficulty understanding his essay because it was riddled with grammatical and spelling errors. He declared, “I don’t subscribe to the rules of the English language!” and stormed out of the classroom.
That student was one of the impetuses that spurred me to study and write about the psychological-spiritual phenomenon of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, a defining attribute of which is the narcissist’s claim that “rules don’t apply me”.
