Most arrogant profession you've encountered?
Answered 3 days ago
Some of the most arrogant and pain in the arse people I've ever met conveniently have one thing in common - their job titles.
I recently was talking with a woman who was so up herself it was unreal. I just nodded and smiled, as I tend to do, and as usual with these people, she brought up what she does for a living. Which I'm not going to divulge at this point.
Now, I'm not assuming that EVERYONE in her role is like that, but it seems to me like a lot of them are.
So, my questions are: have you ever noticed a correlation between someones profession and their personality? Which industry do you think breeds the most buttheads? And do you think our jobs, impact our personalities?
Have an answer?
Oh, and reminds me of a joke:
Daughter: Mum, can you get pregnant from anal sex?
Mum: Of course you can dear; where do you think lawyers come from?
They just can't turn it off.
I guess they think others don't appreciate that it's hard? Some parents do come out with the old "must be so nice spending time with kids all day, home at 3.30pm, loads of holidays" type line.
They usually want my most expensive items, which are one-of-a-kind, and some get quite pissy when I reject them. I have even had some threatening to post about my business in an effort to damage it, simply because I told them that I don't want their services and that on the rare occasion, I seek out particular influences to collaborate with, who specialise in my niche (fashion), and not just post about any item/brand. I don't mention that last part. Just up to the 'specialised niche' part.
Some are hideous in their demands. I've read plenty of stories (screenshots of conversations, too) where they try and harm businesses for telling them no. Some are reputable and provide mutual benefit, but most are wannabes, who chuck a tantrum at being told no. It's so pathetic to leave a one-star review for a restaurant, all because you mentioned to them that you're an 'influencer' and planned on posting about their restaurant but weren't given a discount or a free meal. Everyone has their hand out these days, demanding stuff from others and influencer-culture set that one ablaze.
Like i am aware of many security guards who are criminals, or they tried to get onto police force and couldn't so go into security. Obviously not all of them so this is just a crude generalization, but it's the ex crims and those who wanna seem powerful cos they have a gun on their hip that seem attracted to that type of work
Hands down the most argumentative bunch of people going around. It’s like they are justifying how they get to sit at home all day doing nothing.
Doctors admin workers
Everyone knows 99% of the people in the army only join because they have zero other job prospects or life skills.
an example of what not to do as I was jogging on a treadmill and 'that wont help you lose wieght'. I was 5 months pregant at the time. I wasnt trying to lose weight, arrogant prick.
A couple of them were lovely. But it definitely seemed like the minority.
If you have time to study for years, you have time to learn some manners and humility. I'd think that someone clever enough to get a degree would have figured that out.
For example, a cardiologist might have spent 6+ years studying, and be highly regarded in his field, but when his toilet backs up, does that make him better than the plumber who he calls? No. The amount of time someone spends behind a book or desk has no baring on their worth as a person.
My cousins wife is very difficult and all her friends from work at parties are so, difficult.
They often look down on me in subtle ways but they have no clue that I make as much, in some cases more than them, doing what I do for not 15/20 hours a week.
I love a great political conversation and grew up in a house where politics was openly discussed,but because I’m not far left liberal , I know nothing and have a silver spoon in my mouth.
It’s a shame, because I think they have a written and studied knowledge I could benefit from, but their arrogance gets in the way.
I’m pretty intelligent, but written work and book smart, horrrible because I’m the complete opposite of a perfectionist, I’m a near enough is good enough kind of person.
I speak 4 languages and have travelled all over. Iv learnt from so many, and my friend who works at the uni I LOVE conversations with her. I always learn so much and she has a crown point iv never been privy too. It’s a shame it’s so hard to find academics like her. They have a lot to give. But then again to be that way inclined often takes certain personality traits....
Haven't spoken to him in years now, no loss 😂 we'd just bring him down with our lowly status im sure
I loved it when the arrogant, rude ones called being sugary nice because they needed me for something!
Yet Mechanical Engineers were the best; practical, flexible & open minded and inventive.
HR "professionals" were the most arrogant, but also spiteful, deceptive, manipulative, and empire builders. I never saw any of them support staff in difficulties, rather they were willing tools of management.
I think the nature of the roles attract certain people, and shape them too over time.
Everyone thinks HRs job is to help the employees but its actually to help the business.
There were at least 2 other mums there who were visibly uncomfortable with her diatribe, but we're all too polite to tell her to shut her mouth.
She probably wouldn't hear us if we did anyway, with her head so far up her own arse.
And most people who work at universities.
She walked around the court house like she owned the place, I had designated security due to DV incidents and omg she was so rude to them, they just walked either side of me looking blankly, she glared at them every time she went to speak to me privately, I told her I didn’t mind what they over heard and she snapped at them telling them she doesn’t trust their metal detectors either, they didn’t say a word.
We were waiting for a private room in the break and she turned around loudly telling everyone she doesn’t wait for anyone! It was confirmed The children’s dad had Left the building during the break so it’s not like she was scared of an incident arising.
I could just imagine meeting her at a dinner party , would be all about her for sure!
