Or when you ask yourself, "Is it a spelling mistake or a usage mistake?"

you make a conscious effort to shorten and dumb down your explanations for things, because most people just don't care to know that much detail.

PCad is married and I am not. I am pretty sure if someone asks me what do I do and if I get back with,
"I am an Analog Circuit Designer" they would go "riiiiiight"

Instead I say "I work on stuff for cell phones" which is close enough. If they asked me anything more, I find it incredibly difficult to relate to anyone who is not an engineer.

No way! I am pretty sure you can relate to this.. At least all the single women at work seem to agree with it.
