Okay I just gotta have a small rant, it's not a big deal like AT ALL. It's just really.... Triggering me I guess?

So our language arts had a write short story for this contest in our county (the limit was 800 words which is BULLSHI-) and she had us send our short stories to another kid in class so they can suggest stuff for us to fix and edit it. All that good stuff. That in itself is fine, I honestly think it's fun to edit papers and stories. But the person I had to trade with (not even the first person I had to trade with, but that's a WHOLE other story)....I swear he couldn't wright. The grammar in his story was just plan awful. The tense kept switch from past to present. There was legit no story. It was unoriginal. And don't comment saying he might have a learning disability or anything like that. I go to class with him and trust me. He doesn't have any.
The literal only good thing about it was that it was within the word limit.

Now this in itself wasn't what made me mad. When he went through and edited MY paper he kept suggesting stuff that fucked up my grammar, the flow of sentences, and all that stuff. I took so long to edit his paper and he pulls this shit?! I barely finished editing mine!

Now don't get me wrong, my stories not good. It's pretty bad actually. That word limit is just....YYFYFYOOUO YOU CAN'T DO SHIT WITH 800 WORDS FOR A FULL STORY! Maybe a chapter but A FULL STORY!
But at the very least I had good grammar and somewhat of a story in it, and he couldn't actually find what I did wrong while I basically rewrote his whole paper.

I know its stupid but it just makes me mad. I needed to rant on it

From what I've read simply on this post you have a decent grasp of grammar and writing. I understand it's annoying for people to altar or suggest something that honestly doesn't need fixing.

For the story, I understand the challenge of writing 800 words or less but trust me, it's very possible to create an enthralling piece in a short page. Perhaps one of my favorite activities. It is very mind expanding and a creative drive.
