Quote of the day

Recommended Posts

Haha a mate of mine was taking his work team out for a work lunch and suggested going for a pizza at Franco Manca. One of his colleagues proudly professed that they couldn't go there as they were a pizza snob who could only eat pizza from Pizza Hut.

Yep, pretty much the definition of a snob. You could even take out the specifics...

"I'm a coffee snob. I've got a (insert make/model/brand/type) which cost (insert price).

It works in most arenas. Tellingly, there is no mention of anything tangible regarding performance (also, in this case the raw ingredient), just a perceived self-qualification of the individual based on identification of kit and/or price.

Also works in reverse: "I wouldn't use a (.....), because it cost(....)."
