This is an actual conversation I just had:
Me: I actually ended up changing my major because I didn’t want to and then didn’t have time to take Stats before Research Methods
Classmate: But Stats is really easy. (Can I just say what an utterly irrelevant comment this is at this point?)
Me: Yea, but I can’t take it anyway because you have to take Stats a semester before Research and I’m graduating next semester.
Classmate (how is now completely appalled at this seeming lack of foresight on my part): But you can’t do take Research without taking stats first!
Me: …which Is why I changed my major. Something I literally JUST SAID.
I can’t fucking stand it when people tell me things I already know and have already accounted for like they’re doing me this huge favor by dropping a truth bomb on poor unsuspecting/unrealistic/naive little old me.
Stop talking to me like I’m dumber than you. I most assuredly am not.
