Things that people actually said to me this week

Why don't you go to med school?

--friend of a friend (who doesn't know me in the slightest)

...

I really thought that you, MsPhD, would make it [to become faculty].

--friend from grad school

...

You, MsPhD, would not like teaching as a career.

--friend from grad school

...

This is awkward for me, but it's even more awkward for you.

--my advisor

...

Dear MsPhD:

I'm supposed to present at xxx and I can't make it that day. Can you switch with me?

--male postdoc


My reply:

You've written to the wrong MsPhD. I am not presenting at xxx at all.
You want [other female participant].

Thx
