    18 Things All Communication Majors Are Tired Of Hearing

    "What is that anyway?"

    1. "Communication? Oh... that's... cool, I guess."

    Paramount Pictures

    The coolest tbh.

    2. "What is that anyway?"

    20th Television / Via

    The world's best kept secret apparently.

    3. "So are you just learning how to talk to people?"

    Bravo / Via

    Learning how to ignore people is part of it too.

    4. "I mean... everyone already knows how to communicate though."

    Well damn, guess you got me there. *drops out*

    5. "Are you planning to be a news anchor?"


    The best you've ever seen.

    6. "You can be my publicist when I'm famous."

    Logo / Via

    Famous for what?

    7. "You do film analysis? I love movies!"

    Paramount Pictures

    Micro-analyze every frame then come talk to me.

    8. "How hard can a social media class even be?"

    Summit Entertainment / Via

    Only speak to me in 140 characters or less.

    9. "So you basically live on Twitter then?"

    Comedy Central / Via

    I'm unfollowing you.

    10. "You're exaggerating. Comm theory can't be that hard."

    TLC / Via

    Moonlighting as a philosopher is no walk in the park.

    11. "I wish my major was half as easy as yours."

    NBC / Via

    Do you want to write my back-to-back 10 page papers on hegemonic power structures?

    12. “Why are you so awkward? You're supposed to be a people person!"

    E! / Via

    Public speaking is just as toxic to me as it is you.

    13. "What major did you fail out of first?"

    ABC / Via

    Believe it or not, this was my first choice. Shocking.

    14. "You're just doing this until you declare something more practical, right?

    20th Television / Via

    The shade.

    15. "My homework would be so much easier if I could do it in a group like you."

    UPN / Via

    You try getting a group to meet when everyone is busy 150% of the time.

    16. "Your essays are just creative writing."


    Proving that some cartoon birds represent patriarchy isn't "easy."

    17. "... so can you help me with my essays?"

    Bravo / Via

    "Easy," you said. *takes a sip*

    18. "Can you get a real job with that?"

    WorldMonitiorTV / Via

    Only the ones you wish you had.

    The next time someone asks you what a Comm major even does, remind them, '"literally anything."
