"I'm sorry"

I claim to hate a lot of things on this blog.

But I think I've finally found the one I hate the most.

It's when I'm in a group of people and someone asks what I do, and I say, "I'm a lawyer."

And one smirky, unoriginal, self-important jackass says, "I'm sorry."

Chuckle, chuckle, chuckle.

  1. I always used to say that when someone said they went to BYU. And then I married a cougar.

  2. Haha, well, that's funny :)

    No, really, my big beef is that the conversation always gets really awkward at that point ... like, what am I supposed to say? It's not like having gone to BYU, it's something I currently am and will be for the foreseeable future. I usually just smile uncomfortably and say, "Uh, yeah ... what do you do?"

  3. Yeah that's awkward.
    If it makes you feel any better, when I tell people I want to be a librarian, they say, "you have to go to college for that?" Like I'm aspiring to work at McDonald's or something.
