A very strange phobia which I have...I am afraid bad grammar is contagious...

I'm an immigrant to the U.S. and while I was growing up, my parents often advised me not to play with the other immigrant kids and to hang out with people who were born here and spoke fluent English. And that's what I did. But I keep having this irrational fear of being around people who have accents. I am afraid that I may unconsciously imitate them and lose my ability to speak English free of accent.

And recently (oddly enough) I am afraid of reading certain datalounge posts because there are some posters on datalounge who have very poor grammar. I'm afraid that their inability to adhere to grammatical rules will rub off on me. So ya. I just wanted to vent my fears on here.
