The Insufferable Know-It-All (#22)

I have always had a deep passion for reading.  Starting young, I’d soak up every type of fiction that my school and city library carried.  Initially, I held a safe distance from the characters in my novels, but as I got older, I distinctly remember becoming emotionally invoked by certain personality types, particularly, the “know-it-all.”  I would scoff and roll my eyes at the character.  It seemed completely natural to be put off by this behavior.
