Sally of Diario picked the best word! For more posts on this word hop over to Sally’s blog.
Ultracrepidarianism is the habit of giving opinions and advice on matters outside of one’s knowledge.
What a perfect word for me. I love to give advice and I usually have no idea what I’m talking about. My Uncle once told me, “You are the best at talking about things when you don’t have a clue what you are talking about.” Thanks? I think? I took it as a compliment. Surely what he meant to say is “You are great at being able to blend into situations in which you are not knowledgeable.” Ok. Maybe he meant, “You are a great bullshitter.” Either way I am taking it as a compliment. So why not dole out a little bit of advice on things I know nothing about.
I can’t captain a cruise ship but I’ve watched Titantic and I know a captain should go down with his ship not take the nearest life boat to shore.
All plumbers should wear thongs. Enough said.
I’m not a cashier but it would seem to me if you did a survey/study you would people would be less likely to drop their change when you return it to them in the drive thru if you put the change in their hand first and then the bills. I’ve never dropped my change when it was in my hand first but often drop it if it was on top of the bills. I can’t pick up my pennies because the building wall is right there. I think if I add up all the change I’ve lost I could afford a Venti Starbucks coffee.
I would think a doctor desired to look smart. When I point to a specific spot on my belly and say it hurts, then you press down on the same spot as if you can reach thru to the other side of me and say, “Does this hurt?”, well, it doesn’t make you look very smart. Plus, it makes me want to slug you.
If you are a whore, you will make more money if you keep working the streets and have less chance of disease than if you become a contestant on The Bachelor.
I’m not a politician but I can tell you taking pictures of your junk and sending it to woman you don’t know is a really bad idea.
A dog should understand the hole he is licking is the same hole his poo came out of and most like will taste like poo. I do know where his tongue has been and do not want to be licked with it.
How about we make this interactive? In your comment, leave me a subject. I will then respond with my opinion or advice on your subject.
Sally asked about the French. No one does a beautifully told film which leaves you wanting to hang yourself better than the Italian. However, the French come in a close second. Have you seen La Cite des Enfants Perdus (The City of Lost Children)? Several of their films can be very odd such as Les Triplettes de Belleville (The Triplets of Belleville). The French like colorful hair and sex in bathrooms. Thank you for asking!
