You decide to major in linguistics because a double major is too hard..
Over the next couple of years, your true nature—that of a lazy bum—comes out. Linguistics is part art, part science, and can be both challenging and fulfilling, but you can also coast through many undergraduate degree programs without ever having to work too hard or learn too much. You prove that this is the case at your university.
Your main contribution to linguistics is to reinforce its reputation in certain circles as a “fluff” field of study. Thanks, you jerk.
You decide grad school is too much work, and you have no marketable skills. Desperation sets in, and you go back to where you should have been all along: the job you had in high school.
