And This Is Why You Can't Get A Girl

I went to a networking event and met a friend of a friend.  He asked me what I do for a living.  I told him.  His response, "So, you add no value; you're basically useless and just take up space."  Instead of arguing with him, defending myself, whatevering with him; I simply turned around and started talking to someone else.  He tried to get my attention for the next ten minutes.  I ignored him.

I know he wasn't trying to be a d*ck, but he was a d*ck (I've met a lot of these types of guys); kinda reminds me of Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory.  I did think, "And this is why you can't get a girl" about a hundred times even after I got home.

  1. Eurgh! I can't believe he said that to you! He has no right to make a comment like that to 'judge' you, when he doesn't even know you!

  2. Was he an engineer or a finance guy? They seem to find anyone who doesn't do their job to be utterly useless.

    1. Engineer...that does seem to be the case based on the many engineers I've met

    2. I've had engineers dismiss my job as "a girl job." WTF. Since I know your credentials in real life, AG, I can assure you that your career is far from useless. :)

    3. Thanks, Sabrina! Lol, "girl job." I just wrote him off as another person I never want to speak to again

  3. Hi, I'm a doctor and guys have put down my job on dates as well. In addition, they go on to tell me how much they hate the health care in the US. As if I'm responsible for all that. Douchebags.

    1. Omg, sorry to hear that. How could they put down doctors?!? I'd like to see what they do if they catch ebola. Maybe they wanted to be doctors, but didn't have the grades

  4. It doesn't matter if you are a doctor, neurosurgeon, or the president of the united states. These guys are all douchebags.
