Big Words, Small Mind

| Canada | Learning | September 14, 2014

(We just finished our group presentation and the professor asks the class to give feedback. We get good feedback from the people evaluating us. A random girl in the class decides to interject her opinion.)

Girl: “I feel like the last few groups kept using words they didn’t even write themselves. Like ‘organic compounds,’ like really? Who says words like that in real life?”

Me: That’s what they are CALLED… This is a science class. We are going to use scientific terms.”

(The rest of the class jumped down her throat and laughed at her because she basically called every other group out for using ‘big words’ she didn’t understand to try to make them look bad in front of the professor.)
