06/28/06 - Educational Smuggness
Have you ever had this conversation:
You: Were did you go to school?
Him: (short silent pause) Harvard (followed by little grin).
I hate that silent pause and little grin. Every person who went to an Ivy league school does this (even those who went to Penn). I tried to think of witty response. I usually say, "Oh thats nice, I went to DeVry."
The silent pause and grin does not work however if you went to DeVry. It just sounds like you forgot the name of the school (how could you forget? they have a tv commercial like every 30 seconds).
I also hate when other schools call themselves the Harvard of the _______. I once met a girl who told me that Samford University is the Harvard of the South. If Samford (in Alabama for those of you who don't know) is the HoS then all those southern stereotypes about dumb rednecks are probably true.
Smug harvard guy: I hate you.
PS. You know I got my PhD (playa hatin degree) from Harvard.
