    for me it's if someone tells me they're a fan of any/all of the fast and the furious movies.

    runners up: faigs who tell me they ride bikes or use beard balms/oils.

    seriously. not all social workers are stupid, of course, but in general, some of the dumbest professional people i've ever met have been social workers. incompetent, too.

    They hear their co-workers say smart things and try to repeat what they hear in a feeble attempt to sound smart themselves...it rarely works out well...they learn a little about a lot but they don't learn a lot about anything..

    Also when somebody tells you they are an engineer...usually means they took 1 engineering class in junior college and got a C-...real engineers don't need to say anything..they just baffle you with some little tidbit of knowledge that goes way over your head..
