» A Smart Motherfucker
I am a smart motherfucker myself .. without even trying to be. My dad told me at least a million times while I was growing up, "Dont be smart."
What he really meant was, "Dont be a smart-ass."
I could definitely be a smart ass. (Because I am so smart.) No doubt about it. Being a smart-ass is part of what got me into trouble with the captain.
Because I am not afraid to toe-up with authority figures when they are fucking up. Particularly when their fucking up is affecting me or mine.
Or did he really not want me to be smart?
My dad was smart, but not educated. My mom told me, "I married your father because he was smart and because he had good teeth."

I can confirm that he was smart, but only in a Fyodor Karamazov sort-of-way.
