Things I have heard lately, and the possible meanings:
"You should have been a lawyer."
Compliment: You are good at following a line of reasoning to a logical conclusion, and convincing others who would not naturally have been inclined to reach that conclusion.
Insult: You sure to do like to argue.
"You should have been a doctor."
Compliment: You seem to really care about people, and have a surprising knowledge of how the human body works.
Insult: Your knowledge of pharmaceuticals is disturbing OR you have the worst handwriting I have ever seen.
"You should have been a writer."
Compliment: Your stories are entertaining and well thought out.
Insult: Spending your life on the couch pretending to work seems to suit you.
"It's like Bridget Jones diary!" (said in reference to a piece of your writing)
Compliment: Wow. Funny stuff. As a female, I totally relate to what your saying. Cheers!
Insult: Hey, fatty. Is your weight all you talk about?
These are the sorts of things that run through my head whilst heading home on the 429. Sigh.
