I’ve been hearing this more often lately from people in responce to a complement they’ve been given. It used to be just egotistical celebrities saying it, but now the general public seems to have jumped on the band wagon. The first time I heard it a couple of years ago I didn’t even get it. A friend and I were at the mall and saw an aquantance who had recently had a baby. I commented on how trim she looked. Instead of saying “why thank you,” she say’s 'Its just good genes." She meant the genetic kind of course, but I took it to mean the blue jean type and said something stupid about spanx type jeans.
I’ve heard countless actors, models…say the same thing about themsleves. This just sounds so assy to me. Its like they are trying to not take credit for the attribute, while at the same time bragging about their superior genes. Does this irk anyone else?
