how to annoy me

Tell me that you "go to law school in Connecticut," and then casually name-drop "New Haven" a few minutes later. Wow, you're SO MODEST. CAN WE HAVE SEX NOW?

Awesome. Yalies are always modest. And they never wear pink polos with the collar popped.

Ugh. Or say you "studied in Cambridge." Or better yet, don't mention school at all. Why are Ivy Leaguers so sketchy about their instutions of learning?

You shoulda' said "Don't be embarrased that you went to Yale. I mean, people who don't get into Hahhhvarrrd have to go SOMEPLACE, right?"

That was hilarious...;-)

I'll play devil's advocate here.

He may have just been trying to be modest. I have a good friend who once lamented, "There is no way I can tell people that I am a doctor and that I went to Harvard without sounding like a complete asshole."

Always good to have someone play devil's advocate around here, since I'm more of the hurry-up-and-judge type myself. But don't you think he draws so much more attention to himself by being fake-modest?

In the scenario you described, I think the guy was defintiely being fake modest and therefore a "douche." But, when meeting women and running game we gotta go with what we got. Sadly for this fellow, having gone to Yale may be the most interesting thing about him...

I think you're probably right. Poor kid, he's got to do some work on himself...
