When I was walking to my car from work (I work at sc), a young man stopped me. He asked if I knew where parkside was.
I was in a hurry and I couldn’t think of where it was, so I apologized and wanted to keep going my way, but he stopped me once again.
He wanted to know if I was a student and how come I didn’t know where parkside was…
at this point I’m getting annoyed.
I tend to be a really patient person, sometimes too nice I guess.
In short, one thing led to another point and he asked why do you want to be a therapists?!
(Really? Really? Ugh.)
(Do I really have to explain and justify my career choice?!)
(I just like what I’m doing at this point.)
And he still wouldn’t get it.
He said he was an recent grad and had just landed a job a medical historian, and he asked: do you know what they do?
Me: I remember reading a bit about it, but not really.
Him: oh, me neither. I still have to see what’s about.
What do you think of therapists/counselors?
