Today, I was at a symposium at which my colleague was a co-chair. She and a new acquaintance asked me how it was going. I joked that the discussant's only job at this conference was to be an asshole. The acquaintance was the symposium's discussant. The topic was Rude Behavior at Work. FML

Some people may not understand those words, because they may have never had to encounter it. I don't think you should be calling them morons for never using the words "Symposium" and "discussant" before.

I didn't understand any of those words =/

goooooood jooooob haha p.s: first!

Ah, irony. And I don't think it was the discussant that was the asshole...

I'm confused I couldn't understand any of the words in the fml...&& now I feel stupid...

haha.....so funny

Yeah, you kinda put your foot in it on that one. Consider finding out who you're talking to /before/ saying stupid things in the future.

Anyone attending such a ridiculous conference is automatically a douche anyway. Seriously... "Rude Behavior at Work" is not worth discussing in a fucking conference - everyone knows everything about assholes anyway.

Irony, always tugging at our toes. Haha~

YDI for sure. how would you not know who the discussant is?

Speaking of assholes.... Definitely YDI

Lol, I hope you attended the talks!
