Love this. I've always thought this was annoying
+1, Being called a Doctor as a Phd is something pretentious academics do to feel validation for their largely irrelevant lives
Should I even bother reminding you that PhDs are primarily responsible for most discoveries? How on Earth is a Professor's life irrelevant? Are you a Devry University reject? I wouldn't be surprised...
Frankly, it does not matter what the sheep think. Everyone who has a PhD earned
the title "Doctor". It is irrelevant that some portion of the population thinks that "Doctor" should only
refer to someone with an MD. Those people are ignorant.
Also, it goes both ways - YOU
are an ultimate douche
if you call someone "Mr." when you know that they have a doctorate degree. They might inform you later that they prefer to be called John, Rob, etc., but, until they do, you should call them "Dr.", "Professor", "Sir" (if they have been knighted), etc.
Unbelievable. Some people have no respect for anything nowadays.
