    I do Archaeology and Anthropology and I usually get a variation of the following:

    1. Oooh, sounds interesting... what is that???
    2. Oh that's where you dig up bones, isn't it?
    3. Can't wait to see you on Time Team!
    4. That's 7 years, right? (No, I do not do architecture!)

    Went to a volunteering fayre, a representative of a charity asked me what degree I did, I told her, she said 'That's a bit of a nothing degree isn't it! Don't worry, we've got degrees like that!' Needless to say I don't think my degree is soft and I will never volunteer for that charity!

    It's half Language and half Politics, (I know politics is sometimes considered soft). She did Media Studies and had the nerve to tell me that mine was soft!

    I'm off to study sports journalism in September, when people ask me what I'm doing they said "I never knew you were good at P.e"

    What?

    I heard it was vets that had the highest suicide rate? ah well, yet another thing to look forward to in my future veterinary career
    I heard that it was air traffic controllers. Not sure if that's correct though.
