Doesn't do anything for me

Trust me on this women. If you should meet someone who is a doctor, please avoid doing some specific things. If you don't have a steady job or aren't in school, then we have practically nothing in common, because I have been in school or in training every year of my life since preschool. At least pretend to have a job.

Most importantly though, do not tell me how cool it is to be a doctor. If you're trying to flirt with me, tell me about how wonderful a doctor I must be or some other contrived crap like that, but being a doctor is not cool. If you tell me how cool it is to be a doctor, then I will take that as implied consent to every disgusting medical story I have in my arsenal.

Because saying that being a doctor is cool is really no different from saying that it's cool to be a fireman. It's without any understanding of what it is to be a doctor.
