    Hey, I was walking up the stairs today and suddenly realised how most people fail to produce anything than the most stereotypical and possibly annoying questions when they meet a fresh graduate.

    For example, you have just become a medical doctor and all they ask you is whether a patient of yours died and if yes, how did it feel. Perhaps you are a fresh physicist in which case they utter some unfunny [particle] went to a bar joke in a hope to get some acclaim, or ask what differential equations are and what they do. Anyway, the ones who study languages have it the worst, do they not? “Can you say something in [language]?” Oh, and those sociology graduates! “How much are those fries again?” (I have heard all except the last one in person multiple times.)

    As a psychology graduate, people naturally assume I can solve all of their relationship problems in five minutes and usually mention some wisdom they have read in Cosmopolitan or similar confabulations.

    What are some things related to your degree that you get asked constantly?
