Used to describe a person who thinks they can read minds, but can't.
*based from the words "telepathy" and "pathetic"
It is usually used as a punchline when someone tries to read another person's mind and fails to do so.
Used anytime when one person cannot portray one idea to another in any way through telepathy.

(client pays small fee)
Client: so can you tell me my real name?
Client: so that makes you telepathetic!
