You might have a masters or even some form of doctorate, but remember that the air traffic controller managing all those aluminum tubes in the sky only needs to have an associates degree, so keep your shit in perspective.

Food Service

I’ve never worked in food service but I wonder how often it happens that someone orders a Coke, and you only have Pepsi so you say “Is Pepsi okay?” and the customer says “no thanks. I’ll have a glass of warm goat urine instead”. I get the sense that it should happen a lot more often than it does.

Evolutionary Statistics

There’s this thing called the Dunbar Number which basically says that due to the size of the human neocortex, people typically maintain a max of about 150 friendships. And according to my old copy of the DSM, about 1 in 100 people is schizophrenic. So if you can’t easily identify your crazy friend, there’s probably a voice in your head telling you that it’s not you.
