Like someone saying I'm just a nurse. Yeh, go fuck yourself.

Remember that when somebody says "evolution is just a theory" that that is all it ever has to be and there is absolutely nothing at all wrong with that. It is a theory because it has survived all challenges thrown at it and come out stronger than ever.

Also that the speaker is demonstrating how ignorant they are. Calling you "just a nurse" elevates you and denigrates them at the same time. win-win

Then tell them I just have your life in my hand.

"Evolution is just a theory"

"What country are you from? Are you British? Australian?"

"Hitler was an Atheist"

"Benjamin Franklin invented electricity"

"You're not a hillbilly, you're smart"

"Are you a Democrat or a Republican?"

"Say something!" (In reference to my accent)

"That's not what I was raised to believe", "It was good enough for my father, it's good enough for me", etc

"Americans are fat" (I'm looking at you, Great Britain, who has a large number of "fat folk".)

"I'm offended" - And?

Shocking

RE: Things that should not be said in your presence
When I'm out in public with one or both of my sons without my wife - running to the grocery store, grabbing an iced coffee or whatever and someone, usually a Baby Boomer woman, says something to the effect of, "Giving Mom the day off?" or "Is Mom taking a little break?" First off: "Mom" could be out of the picture, or dead, or I could be gay, or our family could be in any one of a hundred different scenarios where there is just legitimately not a woman involved. You don't know me, don't assume. Second: Fuck off! I'm not a substitute parent, babysitting while the "real" parent with the vagina is doing something else. I'm not making some grand gesture or huge sacrifice by taking my kids to the park; I'm these kids' father and I'm spending time with them. It's valuable to them and me as well.

I don't mean to indicate that my wife doesn't sometimes deserve some time off - she totally does, as do I, as does every parent who puts their whole self into raising their children. And we do try to build in little episodes here and there where one of us will take both kids out for an hour or two so the other one can just sit in a quiet house and do nothing but breathe if that's what they want. But the assumption shouldn't be that I'm experimenting with parenthood by "watching the kids" while my wife does something else. I don't think people would see a mother out with her two boys and suggest that it's "Dad's day off," or something like that, they'd assume she's parenting, they wouldn't read anything special into it. /rant.

Something that shouldn't be said in my presence: "Can you play Freebird?" Yes, I know the chords and the lyrics and I very often enjoy playing it by myself... but there's no way in hell I'm gonna play it in a bar.

Well, atleast they're not asking you to play Wonderwall.



I fucking hate Wonderwall. Fucking white guys with their fucking acoustic 30 dollar shitguitars.
