Me and my ex, and well, my friend had a bit of a verbal fight. No biggy. I think he just went too textual here

I was talking to my ex online. He's always had this kind of pathological need to be right. He is sometimes, but he should learn to admit he isn't all the time. He might have been right here if you take facts textually, but if he's as smart as he always claimed to be it's obvious he should've understood what I meant.
The conversation was pretty silly, but then again I just mean to reflect his ill need to be told he's right.

WARNING: The conversation is long-ish, so make sure you want to use your time doing this before you start.

This was part of our conversation:

thomas says:
*ur sister is pissing me off
Bridgette says:
*why?
thomas says:
*she said ive been a cocky asshole that throws her advice right back because i said ur telling me things i allready know and im sure shes just acting this way becuase of wat happened between her and branden and everything shes been different lately
Bridgette says:
*ok but you probably shouldn't've said something about her and brandon
thomas says:
*its true though so
Bridgette says:
*why would she yell at you when you had nothing to do with her and brandon breaking up?
thomas says:
*shes just cranky thats why
Bridgette says:
*she's not cranky
thomas says:
*hmm shes sure been acting diff]
Bridgette says:
*so why'd you hit that kid?
thomas says:
*i dont feel like telling the story because u will act like steph
Bridgette says:
*why do you say that? I didn't just break up with someone, which is the reason you said Steph was yelling at you
thomas says:
*idk
Bridgette says:
*then don't say something you don't know
thomas says:
*im good at infuring and if i told u u wouldnt know the half of it anyway
Bridgette says:
*then tell the WHOLE thing
*and infuring isn't a word...what do you mean?
thomas says:
*to long of a story
Bridgette says:
*I have time
thomas says:
*i dont
Bridgette says:
*what do you mean by infuring?
thomas says:
*to infur something
Bridgette says:
*that's not a word
thomas says:
*watever miss i can spell everything correctly
Bridgette says:
*do you mean infer?
thomas says:
*ur always correctin me its anoying
Bridgette says:
*I'm not always correcting you
*and this time I was trying to figure out what the hell you meant
thomas says:
*really
Bridgette says:
*name the last time I corrected you with a word
thomas says:
*every convo ur always like u mean this or that
*nvm
*i dont even care anymore
Bridgette says:
*name a specific time
thomas says:
*anytime
Bridgette says:
*I thought we were talking about correcting spelling
thomas says:
*im not even going to try so i just give up with talking
*ill just end up hurtin my small brain so
Bridgette says:
*cuz ur wrong and u know that
thomas says:
*no im not u cant deny that u correct me on spelling a lot
Bridgette says:
*you can't even name one other time I have
*and I haven't done it in a long time
thomas says:
*because im not going to try because i know im right and ur just going to be all no i dont and stuff thats why i said nvm and im leaving it at that
Bridgette says:
*fyi, you're not always right, if you were you could think of a time, but obviously you can't because you're wrong
thomas says:
*the day u asked me out the day after u asked me out just about everyday we were going out u at least corrected me on something u just do it so much u dont relize ur doing it
Bridgette says:
*and since I dumped you I haven't corrected you
*which I said I haven't for a long time
thomas says:
*u said i cant name anytime which i just did so
Bridgette says:
*you couldn't within this long time, you named only times when we were going out which was year ago, since then I haven't and you can't name one time I did after that
*and you said I am ALL the time, so you lied
thomas says:
*u got to reword u questions u asked u cant even think of a time so i did so u got to be more specific
Bridgette says:
*I was before, I said I hadn't corrected you in a long time
*and that IS a long time ago
*so it doesn't count
thomas says:
*lol
*watever read wat u said i just answered the question
Bridgette says:
*well if you read everything you would have seen I said a long time, and anyways you said I was correcting you all of the time but yet you can only think of examples from a year ago
thomas says:
*go read ur question though u said u cant even think of a time so ur argueing about a pointless thing even though im correct right now
Bridgette says:
*you're not correct because you can only think of a time a year ago and you said I'm always doing it!
*and yea I did say that but I said I haven't for a long time
thomas says:
*see ur just argueing just to argue
Bridgette says:
*I'm arguing because you're wrong but you can't admit it and That is annoying'
thomas says:
*im right i answered ur question how u worded it lol wat dont u get
Bridgette says:
*and you're arguing too just because you want to say you're right but you're wrong
*what don't You get? You're changing what you're right about
thomas says:
*lol ur funny because u dont understand ur own question because ur saying im wrong for answereng ur question correctly lol wow
Bridgette says:
*you're funny because you think you're right when you're wrong. You say I'm correcting you all of the time but you can only think of times a year ago
thomas says:
*yeah but that isnt the question u asked ur just talking because ur confused u never win these arguements
Bridgette says:

Bridgette says:

Bridgette says:
*3rd person interjecting here, Thomas you ARE wrong. I don't mean to seem mean... but you Are wrong. I don't know how you even think you're right because I've read everything....and you're wrong. I won a debate speech and I know how to tell who's right and who's wrong. And you are wrong. Bridgette is right this time.
thomas says:
*u dont even debate debating is using brain matter which ur not ur just argueing and not using any valid points so wat a great debate lol
Bridgette says:
*what the hell? You wouldn't know that. This is Liz NOT Bridgette atm, and I just got an acedemic award at school I Am smart and using my brain matter. You need to use yours to know you're wrong and stop insulting people like me
thomas says:
*insult ha shes emotional unstable i never insulted anyone if ur using ur brain shes the one that called me a asshole last time i checked so
Bridgette says:
*you're acting like one
thomas says:
*i have self control i dont have to use insults lol
Bridgette says:
*oh that's why you hit someone?
*that shows SOOOO much self control
thomas says:
*ha u dont know the half of it so u cant even use that
Bridgette says:
*I do, I have an older brother who's a fucking asshole. Just like you. I use to think you were ok. But you're srsly a jerk. I don't know why Bridgette went out with you. If I was going out with you and had to deal with this and you always thinking you're right, I think I'd rather kill myself. Because it's Really annoying
thomas says:
*lol if u want to know i beat that kid up to protect my little sister because he was just about to hit her so u have to watch out wat u say i dont let anything happen to my family or people i keep close not even bridgette i would have did the same thing for her we just have these fights so u can use i hit someone
*cant use
Bridgette says:
*yea, and That was something good
*but always thinking you're right is something bad
*because sorry, even if I didn't know either of you, Bridgette was right in this case
thomas says:
*im not allways right i know that but the arguement was about how i answered the question she asked when have i corrected u so i answered and i answered the question correctley
*and she makes an arguement
Bridgette says:
*fine, then you won the arguement, but she was still right
*you can't think of a time recently she corrected you
thomas says:
*yeah possibley not but that isnt wat she asked so
*we are don with the arguement
Bridgette says:
*omG
*yea
*and she did win then
*cuz u don't even know what it was about
thomas says:
*yeah i do
Bridgette says:
*ur saying ur right because she corrected you a year ago
*that's Not what she was even talking about
thomas says:
*u are rewording things
Bridgette says:
*she was talking about anytime recently
*no
*I'm not
*you're rewording the arguement
thomas says:
*she didnt have recently in the question i answer things exact and that wat i did
Bridgette says:
*she said she didn't recently and you said yea and she said when
*and you could only name a time that was a year ago!
*she's right
*just give it up Thomas
*you don't Always have to win
*you just said you know you're not always right
*this Is one of those times
*just let it go
thomas says:
*watever ill just let it go ill make her happy lol even though it isnt true i have 2 people over looking this convo and laughing about all the stupid things u two say and they are not friends or family friends so
Bridgette says:
*if they're not friend or family people, what are they? stranger? in you're house
*sounds really reliable
thomas says:
*yeah i know there aqanteces
Bridgette says:
*who?
thomas says:
*cant give my sources because i might need them later
Bridgette says:
*probably bcuz u don't have any
thomas says:
*and i allready said im done ill make her happy so let it go
Bridgette says:
*anyways Thomas
*it's not about making her happy
*you're wrong
*she's right
*shut the fuck up
*I don't care anymore
*Bridgette says bye
thomas says:
*u make such a big deal like its the end of the world

Sorry if this is annoying, but after having to deal with his ego and his attitude for so long, I want to know if it was just me being annoyed for no reason or if I was actually right to think he's just a jerk.

Thanks.
