When You Don’t Even Know What You Don’t Know

, , , , , | Friendly | June 1, 2022

We are at university. My friend is hoping to arrange an industrial placement, but the start of the academic year is looming.

Me: “Have you arranged where you’ll be staying next year?”

Friend: “No, not yet.”

Me: “What about [Landlord]?”

Friend: “No, I can’t speak to them yet as I don’t know yet.”

Me: “What about when you do know?”

Friend: “Well, I don’t know when I’ll know, so I can’t say whether or not I’ll know.”

Me: “That’s a lot of ignorance.”

Friend: “There’s not a lot I can do about that.”

Me: “I know.”

Friend: “I don’t.”

Me: “I know.”

Friend: “Wah!”

A few months later

Me: “I mentioned that conversation about ‘That’s a lot of ignorance’ to [His Housemate]. He said it was very like you.”

Friend: “Well, yes, that’s because it was me.”
