Why does he try to correct me? What's his problem?

So my man, tries to correct me on silly things. I don't know if he joking, or just trying to look smarter than he is.

Examples:
I will say, "Gaan huis toe" ---->he will respond, "gaan 'na' huis toe" (which no Afrikaaner I know uses 'na' in that sentence; it's so effing basic, and neither do my Afrikaans tutors)

OR

The other day I said, "it was a hard day" and he responds, "it was a 'difficult' day. A rock is hard. My English teacher taught me that."

I responded with, "'hard' is a synonym for 'difficult' and if you read books, no editor ever corrected that statement, so your teacher was incorrect. We are human and all make mistakes."

He responds, "No. She's right and you are wrong. haha"

I just laughed it off because I know I am right. I just think, "what's his problem?"
