It’s Nobody’s Business

| Windom, MN, USA | Working | April 26, 2012

(I am a manager at my local fast food restaurant. I’m talking to an elderly, slightly mean coworker before I leave for college.)

Coworker: “You’re going to Penn State, right?”

Me: “No, actually I’m going to the University of Pennsylvania.”

Coworker: “That’s what I said.”

Me: “The University of Pennsylvania is an entirely different school.”

Coworker: “No, it’s not.”

Me: “Yes, the University of Pennsylvania is in the Ivy League, and Penn State is in the Big 10.”

Coworker: “What’s the Ivy League?”

Me: “The Ivy League is all of the schools like Harvard, Yale, and Princeton.”

Coworker: “Oh… I always thought you were a nobody!”

Me: *speechless*

(My store manager, who has overheard the entire conversation, speaks up.)

Store Manager: *to coworker* “Have you ever considered that if he were a nobody, you would be his boss, and not the other way around?”
