  • It would depend on the person and the context in which it was used. If it was said by someone who I am having an argument with and they are mad because I don't agree with them, I could laugh it off. If one of my supervisors said it to me, I would really find it amusing, considering I do all their work. If it was said to me about something that I had limited knowledge about and am asking questions, then I would be offended.

  • It would really depend on context. There are a lot of topics in which I am truly uneducated.

  • It depends. I know nothing about politics because I don't care and I know nothing about literature because it was never a huge interest for me. I hold two degrees, a BS and an MS, so I know I'm not uneducated. It's a rude thing to say anyway, and it shows incredibly poor manners.

  • Uneducated regarding what?

    There are plenty of topics on which I am completely uneducated.

  • It would depend on why they called me uneducated. If they are talking philosophy, or politics, then they would be pretty spot on. If they ment in general I might be a little annoyed.

  • No, because I am not, and secondly, I don't care what others think about me.

  • It depends; since I don't know everything then I wouldn't be upset if we were discussing a topic that I am lacking knowledge of.

  • If someone is fighting with me & in anger says then I would understand that perhaps the way the person I am arguing with and myself are behaving nonsense. In second case if a person tells me the same for my unexpected behaviour then again I would have to accept it but If the person is out of mind & tells me this then for sure I'll think that the fool doesn't know I'm well educated....

  • I don't think they would because I am well-educated and well-informed. Rather than being offended, I'd probably assume they were actually pretty uneducated themselves and just projecting. I do think it's a rude thing to say, but I don't usually get too bent out of shape about such things.
