    +1 This pisses me off to high heaven too. i'm a dude and all but it can happen. i don't even like this when it's subte.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    I'm a coffee snob. If somebody puts Folgers in front of me, I may drink it, depending on how badly I need caffeine ... but I'll whine and complain about it.

    Yes, this is just as bad. The issue here isn't even really snobbery but people who are using social pressure on others...for whatever biazarre reasons they have for doing it.

    I've had people tell me I spend too much on clothes and then I tell them I got a certain item for four dollars at thrift store and then they just go nonplussed, people will never be happy.

Then she calls later and tells me she took it back and got the money.
    Wow...that's not right.

    I read something about that in "psychology today" or whatever the name of that magazine is. People don't realize that just because someone likes brands, luxury, is "cultured" it doesn't make them a snob. Insecure people who want to belong to a group they perceive themselves inferior as are not snobs. In that case the person doesn't feel superior since he/she is trying to "climb". That means the person perceived themselves as inferior and wants to go up the ladder therefore there is no preconceived notion that she/he is better than you.

    It's people who feel genuinely superior to everyone around them who are. Yes, there are broke and "uncultured" snobs out there. There are people who believe they are better than you no matter what you do.


    Oh boy, reversed snobbery is rampant in my school. I've had people dislike my shoes after learning which store I bought them from when they initially liked them.
    Sometimes I feel like I'm "on Mercury"-

    There are styles I love, and brands I tend to find suit me well. Some of them tend to be expensive... unless you find them at Goodwill, Salvation Army, Ross... I like what I like. I like it better if it doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

    I had a yard sale with a couple of friends last spring and I threw in a bunch of clothing I hadn't worn for over six months. One buyer who picked up some of my stuff for about $7 said "You do realize this is $150 worth of clothing?"

    Yup. I paid less than half of that, and you're getting it for a tenth. Is that a problem?

    Accept any compliments and don't tell anyone where you bought it. That's my advice.

    i think almost everyone is guilty of some degree of snobbery, it's a form of pride, or sense of self-superiority... always undeserved in the grand perspective of our world.

    how ironic, to put down the prideful.
