I saw this comic from DebbieOhi.com being passed around facebook this week and it made me think a) it's so true and b) writers are crazy.
Could you imagine if people in other occupations did this? Say a taxi driver.
Me: Take me to Millennium Park.
Taxi Driver: Ugh. I'm such a bad driver. Probably won't even remember which pedal is the gas. Wait, I do remember. And I know which way to go to get Millennium Park. Hey, I'm an AWESOME taxi driver! Whoo hoo! Oh wait. Nope. This is Wrigley Field. Man I suck.
Or what about a Neurosurgeon?
Neurourgeon: Who is the genius that said I should cut into this dude's head? Really? I'll never get the tumor out. I totally suck at this. Oh wait. There it is. Maybe I can get it out. Oh wow, I'm totally getting it! I'm awesome! Look at me go! This tumor is history...oh wait. Darn it. That wasn't it. I hope that wasn't important. Ugh, I suck.
See? We're the only crazy people right? Are you crazy too?
