Elevator Conversations: The Results of Learning

Person 1: “You know what bothers me?”

Person 2: “What?”

Person 1: “The kind of people who work really hard to learn something and then, when they get it, find out they’re no smarter than when they started.”

Person 2: “Why is that so bad?”

Person 1: “Because those smart people tend to take out their frustrations on the people who didn’t work quite as hard at being ignorant. And they can be really mean about it, too.”

Person #2: “You should stop eating olives at lunch. You get all weird and philosophical.”
