A new self-deprecating meme has people sharing just how useless they would be in a time of crisis.

The joke follows a father as he berates his child for not becoming a doctor, making people feel terrible about their actual jobs in the process.

Modern parenting group The Dad started it all off on Twitter with a light-hearted jab at how unhelpful YouTubers would be during an in-air emergency, riffing on the popular video introduction, “what up guys."
