S/O You Know What You Should Do - I love it! But now I hate it!
« on: November 05, 2013, 02:41:14 PM »
Not exactly the same but that thread reminded me of a person who did this several times.

I would get a haircut at BoRics because it was affordable AND I liked what the stylist did.

Person: I love your hair!  Where did you get it done?
Me:  Bo Rics
Person: Oh I don't like them - they never do a good job.
Me:    ???

So what's your tale of misadventure?

I had a guy that would always comment on my lunch-

"Oh, that looks good!  Where did you get it?"

"Blah-de-blah."

"Ugh, I hate their food!"

It was multiple places.  This guy hated everything, apparently.

I have a friend who does it with bands.

Her: Oh, this is an awesome song! Who sings it?
Me: The Pink and Purple Elephants
Her: Oh, I hate them, all their songs are terrible.

She's a music snob. So any band that becomes popular (even if she liked them when they were unpopular) is just terrible.

What's the best way to annoy an indie rock snob? Actually enjoy music.

Ugh. I hate that. And it's happened to me more times than I can remember.

A lot of tv shows: I don't watch much network tv, or am able to commit to any type of series. I just don't have the time or attention span. And because a lot of what's on I find to be insipid, boring carp. But I never voice my opinion.  What I do watch, however, is a lot of "real life" NOT reality shows on cable, and so on. And get comments on how can you watch that stuff, its boring, and so on. And also comments about why I don't watch the "popular" stuff everyone else does!

Clothes. I am the queen of bargain hunters, but am willing to pay a bit more if something fits really well, looks good, and is well made. I belive in the "you get what you pay for" mantra, but I still have people who will ask me where I got something as they like it, but feel the need to comment on how they would NEVER spend that much, once they find out it wasn't a $2 clearance special somewhere.

I had an acquaintance who is very label conscious.  I also have an addiction to cute handbags, but most are generic brands from discount stores. 

Her: That's so cute.  Who made it?
Me: I don't know.  I got it at *store*
Her: .......oh.........

You can literally see the admiration morph into disdain (like a slo-mo reaction scene in a movie).
