On Sunday, a young woman “followed” me and I couldn’t help but notice the BA (Hons) jammed in the title of her blog. I mean, people are so insecure that their compensatory behavior borders on ridiculous. What am I supposed to do with her BA (Hons)?
I didn’t visit her blog because I understood her message. (1) She’s like, you know, special. (2) She’s the only person in the USA to graduate with a BA, (3) she assumes that her honors degree is impressive and (4) that I or others didn’t get a tertiary education because we didn’t add degree titles in our blog name. How absolutely tiresome. If she comments on my posts, I’ll trash them.
Sadly, she’s not the first person who’s tried this “I have a college degree, bow down,” crap with me. As I’ve said before, if you can’t feed starving children in Aleppo with it, don’t brag.
When I see blog posts going, “Hello, I’m in grad school, look at this statue in the background,” I know that these delusional individuals are really buying into the idea that their degree titles mean something to the average consumer. There’s a saying that dumb people are easier to manipulate and control by those in power..
But don’t take my word for it. Please read this article: “Student Explains Why College Graduates Are So Stupid.”
