Re: know it all ???

Anyone who feels the need to tell you how very much he knows, probably doesn't know very much at all.

Re: know it all ???

What I'm concerned about for myself is if I have 10 years of experience of one year of experience 10 times.
I suspect their may be a difference.

Re: know it all ???

Everybody I've ever met who made a statement like that - about anything - was usually woefully short of knowledge.

The ones like that who actually DO know a lot are nearly always insufferable a$$holes or otherwise off kilter in some serious ways. The latest one I met was a steel boat cultist with a strong streak of survivalist about him. He also claimed to have four Ph.D's. Just to top it all off, he was German and personified all the most extreme stereotypes that can engender. Would have made a perfect S.S. officer 75 years ago. The friend who brought him around felt the need to apologize profusely later but I told him that, far from being annoyed, I actually had trouble containing my laughter at the clowns nonsense.

In any case, if you hear that statement from someone, about anything, time to start looking around for the exits.

Re: know it all ???

British humour - the gold standard.

I knew a girl once, years ago, who's father was a consulting neurosurgeon - the guy the other brain surgeons asked questions of when it got too hard or complicated.

I remember thinking that was just about as good or skilled as it was possible to be - I sure can't think of anything that could top it.

My father told me something long ago, and I told my children the same thing.
It is much better to have other people tell you how good/great/talented you are than for you to tell them how good you are. Them telling you means that you have impressed them somehow. You telling them.....means that you are probably the only person that is impressed!
