So I was sitting down resting after a job, and I heard someone in the other room who was sitting at a computer say "Where's that damn pre-med guy who always has an answer for everything?"
He was talking about me, do you think I should I take that as a compliment?
If you really are knowledgeable, then take it as a compliment, no matter what the tone was.
I know a lot of shit about a lot of shit. So I'm often referred to as a know-it-all. Both in a good and a bad way. I have family and friends who call me up out of the blue and ask me the most random questions.
There are those that appreciate my knowledge, and there are those who are offended by it because it hurts their self-esteem. Either way, I'm okay with it.
intelligence is admirable. no matter how they meant it if you are smart that's something to be proud. i'm guessing it was said as a compliment otherwise maybe he'd have called you a know it all if he meant it like you're full of yourself.
you don't get what you wish for ~ you get what you work for
Nah I'm not a bullshitter. I can't bull shit because if I spout out a bunch of bs and get called out on it later that hurts my credibility and that's the last thing I want.
I've though about it and it's pretty obvious most of these guys don't know much about anything. I work on airplanes and the majority of people I work with know little to nothing outside what their job requires them to know. I'm not gonna sit here and act like I'm better than anyone. Sure I will be reading a book about, say, skeletal anatomy while everyone else is reading Maxim or Guns N Ammo - but that's just my niche.
I honestly can't help if someone feels intimidated that I know as much as I know. In the last 2 years I've read over 20 books on just diet and nutrition alone, plus books on various other subjects. I learn things to know more than what I used to, not to know more than the person next to me.

Sounds like both. A compliment due to the fact that you have the answer he doesn't have, yet also frustration from the guy for that exact reason. A compliment with hidden within a little jab at you. A little jealousy/envy perhaps on their part. He said it in a smart ass tone, because he was butt hurt to admit you would have the answer, which in turn you should feel good about and bottom line: Fuck him!!! Ask him if he like apples, bitch slap him, then ask how you like them apples!!
