People are sharing the irritating responses they get when they say their job
If other jobs got the same response as writing:
-You're a fireman? Have you put out any famous fires?
-You're a lifeguard? Can I be a victim in your next rescue?
-You're a physicist? I have a few universe theories myself!
-You're a chef? I'd do food too, but I never have time.

Which struck such a chord that it was shared more than 5,000 times all by itself.
But then other people joined in, sharing the irritating responses they get when they tell someone their job, and it took on a whole new life of its own.
I put out a famous fire once. Nobody cares to ask about it though?
Also, you forgot an important one:

When I was in college I got “you’re a philosophy major? Are you going to analyze me?” Double the ignorance, double the fun.
