John Scalzi posted this about a new term he is coining: McKean’s Inversion. Go ahead and read his post. I will wait for you here.
Finished? Funny, isn’t it?
So here’s my take on McKean’s Inversion:
I knew someone like this in college. He was friends with some of my friends, so I spent quite a bit of time with him even though I didn’t particularly care for him. Self-important, judgemental, mean…
And he would always say, “But I’m a nice guy!” (Usually when some new girl had declined his advances.)
If you have to say it, it’s not true.
Thank you, John Scalzi. Now I have a name for this fascinating human behavior.
