UNFORTUNATE enough to meet someone who describes themselves using these phrases? Be aware they’re basically just synonyms for ‘total prick’:
This person believes themselves to a Silicon Valley tech guru when, in reality, they work in IT for Homebase. They will prattle on about how a minor change they’re going to make to how tiles are categorised on the website is going to revolutionise the world.
Anyone describing themselves this way is also usually guilty of using the phrase ‘sheeple’. They imagine that they’ve seen through the the shadowy constructs of reality, when actually all they’ve done is watched a YouTube video featuring an emotionally unhinged American complaining about losing a fight on Twitter.
Only a truly weapons-grade bellend would sincerely call themselves this, and it’s typically used by office workers who think they’re too creative for the corporate world. However, their idea of not playing by the rules usually just amounts to occasionally taking an extra 15 minutes at lunch or putting their feet up in meetings when there’s no boss there.
This is usually used by someone trying to add an entirely unwarranted degree of mystique and glamour to their job. If anyone describes themselves as an ‘accountancy rockstar’, you’ll know that they are a wildly deluded prick.
Everyone has ideas, it’s one of the basic indications that you are a living, sentient human. This phrase is most frequently heard when the person is forced to defend a thoroughly stupid suggestion about reorganising petty cash, and will insist, ‘Look, I’m just an ideas man’. Yes you are, and they are all bad ideas.
