People on Twitter share hilarious “comeback” for questions about their college majors

December 26th, 2017

‘Tis the season for reunions and awkward conversations with relatives you see almost once a year. In Filipino family reunions, we all have that one Tita who’s always curious about certain things in our lives and always have those “typical family reunion questions” ready for us.

Over the holidays, people on Twitter share conversations about their college course/major and you might find these useful when your Tita Baby or Tito Jun ask you the same question when you see them.

Some of them had the perfect “comeback” or “plot twist” when they were asked what their college course is.

Others were just left speechless at how little other people know about their majors and the common misconceptions people attach to it.
