The Deal-Breaker

I just got back from getting a haircut.  The usual small talk quickly got to the fact that I am a student.

“What’s your degree?”

“Physics.”

And that was literally the end of the conversation.  Not a change in subject.  Just silence.

I’ve had a whole range of responses from people when they learn my field of study.  Some are interested, many talk about how they hated the class or didn’t understand it, and some honestly don’t know anything about it, but usually ask about it in some way.  But this is the first time I’ve had such a reaction, and it was just really weird.
