"Oh, I work as a janitor at a college." I replied to his shocked face. "Yeah, I'm a janitor, even though I'm a lot smarter than most of the students there. Sometimes I'll see a complex math equation on a board, like half of an equation, and I'll just... figure it out."
In case you didn't get the reference, it's basically the plot of the film Good Will Hunting and I don't actually work as a janitor nor do I work in a university setting. Luckily, he did get the reference and laughed while admitting he may have come off a bit douche-y. Maybe that's the key to dealing with self-important people - cheeky little comments that will get you a laugh.
How do you deal with condescending people?
