Every time someone tries to explain why “chemicals” are bad for me. I’m an organic chemist.


Software engineer. An old housemate was the walking definition of the Dunning Kruger effect. I think he wrote a python script at work once, so felt qualified to explain to me how Microsoft Word was the best program for editing code, because it’s designed to handle large text files.


I’m a motorcycle mechanic, went to trade school for it and everything. A lot of motorcycle people like to repair their own bike or modify it. The problem is most of them are totally clueless. Recently a customer of mine has been having a run-ability issue after installing a new exhaust. I had told him beforehand he would need a tuner or the bike would have problems after the install. He keeps texting me saying he thinks it’s one thing or another, but has yet to install the tuner. I get that all the time too. My customers always wanna dance around an issue after I’ve given them a solution.

Tradesman here, at a local hardware store, department salesman was tending to a customer selling him all kinds of nonsense expressing confusing jargon. Could not believe what I was hearing. I was going to tip off customer, however customer looked at me in my work clothes in a demeaning manner. I simply minded my business and went about my day.
