I am writing a short story and the program tells me that this sentence is a fragment. Now, there are some cases where sentence fragments must be used in creative writing because of what characters say etc..

How is that a fragment? Or is the program wrong?
That is one confused grammar program. That is a complete sentence, by every definition that I am aware of.
