    Nobody gives a **** about your big words

    or your expensive wines. Your life has no meaning.

    It took me a long time to realise what this

    term meant, as many of my "friends" fitted this term perfectly. It wasn't until I hit rocky times that none of them gave me any support! They hide behind a smug grin to pacify you into thinking you are their best buddy. Being pretentious isn't uncommon these days be its not the...

    Know A Person Like This...

    I love her to bits and she is like an auntie to me but sometimes I do mistrust her. It's just little things really. Like she is overly affectionate to everyone calling them sweet names but will then say something nasty or offensive about them. It makes her come across as 2 faced...

    Get The Shovel!

    As my Mama always said, "An ounce of pretention is worth a pound of manure." I believe that pretty much covers it!

    I dislike when people talk to me like I'm dumb.

    Why can't people think before they speak? Why do people feel the need to know everything? I don't care if you know everything, just keep it yourself.

    I Can Be

    But I've seen alot worse in life and on EP. Just blatant "I am such and such(insert compliment here)". I would never have the ego to do such a things. I love the finer things in life, always have. Maybe it's because I grew up in poverty. But at any rate, it's very...

    He Is Not An Excellent Typist

    Ha. I was reading a story a friend wrote, saying that he was a certain kind of person and came in this individual, all high and mighty, saying that my friend could NOT be that (supposedly something high and mighty itself) because he, my friend, could not spell the word EXPERIENCE...

    Pretentious People, As the ...

    Pretentious people, as the name states, are people who pretend to be something they're not. That's called hypocrisy. I hate Hypoccrites (is that spelled right?). No matter how much of a loser you are, be yourself.

    Pretentious - Moi?

    Pretentious people are tiresome, tedious, and superfluous. As I was saying to Paris just the other day, they’re such shameless name-droppers, I mean, it’s outré. Poseurs of their stripe aren’t even interesting enough to be uninteresting, if you...
