To find my family a bit common and embarrassing

Or am I just pretentious?

They love the cakes at pat Valarie and go on about them. When I think these are vile made off site factory cakes that are frozen.

They played the sam smith album and went on about how good his voice is and all that. Sounds like music for people that dont like music IMO.

They are wolfing down cadburys chocolate saying how delicious it is. Over sweet waxy stuff - give me Mr Roth any day.

I just don't feel on the same level as them. Really average lives and I just have nothing in common with them.

You are being pretentious. HTH.

LagunaBubbles Sun 27-Mar-16 07:05:39

Who are you talking about? You do realise that we all have different likes/dislikes etc?

JeanSeberg Sun 27-Mar-16 07:07:35

Pretentious isn't the word I would have chosen.

Bunbaker Sun 27-Mar-16 07:08:11

And judgemental. Although I don't like Cadburys myself, I don't think less of anyone else liking them.

I'm talking about my parents, three sisters and their partners.

I realise we all have different tastes, but they seem to only like really common populrist stuff, and talk as if its amazing. When its all just a bit shit IMO.

Is this a wind up? Pretentious? Nah. You are being a twat though. You do realise that having more expensive tastes than your family doesn't make you superior to them don't you? 'Really average lives' FFS hmm

Poor you, you are above these plebsbiscuit.

NorksAreMessy Sun 27-Mar-16 07:14:23

Yeah, right

Whatthefreakinwhatnow Sun 27-Mar-16 07:15:03

Amazing 😂

OP you sound utterly ridiculous, I love it! Looong Sam Smith and Cadburys is frightfully common is it?! Well call me a commoner then as I fully intend to demolish a few cadburys egg today!

What a pretentious load of old codswallop! 😂

Do you pronounce your name Mrs bouquet or Mrs bucket?

Sorry couldn't resist. Tbh, I can agree with you on some level. I feel the same about some members of my own extended family. But I'm sure they think I'm being a snob ! 😏

Haudyerwheesht Sun 27-Mar-16 07:15:13

You sound like what my mother would refer to as 'nouveau riche' . I'd use other words but either way, you're a fool.

Sheridan's on the phone dear.

Is this satire?

YakTriangle Sun 27-Mar-16 07:18:53

New flash - your family is allowed to have different tastes and opinions to yours.
Would you stop being friends with someone who liked Patisserie Valerie cakes? Or would just accept that maybe their tastebuds are less classy than yours?

tellmemore1982 Sun 27-Mar-16 07:19:42

OP do they all drink cheap brand Coke, and wear plastic it synthetic watches with straps that match their outfits, and mistake faux leather for the real thing, whilst wearing only the best cubic zirconium?

I would tell you how I'm in the process of watching a beloved family member dying right now, how he was different to me but had the worlds kindest heart and thoughtful mind, how I realise none of these things matter.

But I call BS so I won't.

storminabuttercup Sun 27-Mar-16 07:22:48

I thought patisserie Valerie was posh.

I must be common as muck me.

You sound like a twunt to be honest OP.

Chocolatteaddict1 Sun 27-Mar-16 07:23:43

mouse you beat me to it !

Chocolatteaddict1 Sun 27-Mar-16 07:25:03

You can get Mr Roth in Aldi ! grin

NationMcKinley Sun 27-Mar-16 07:27:06

grin. You poor love. Have you considered NC? <head tilt>

curren Sun 27-Mar-16 07:30:08

You get moser Roth chocolate in Aldi. It's hardly refined, although tasty.

Assuming this is actually true. You sound awful.

I don't like sam smith, Cadburys or Pat Valerie. It doesn't make me any better than people who do love these things.

You need to get your head out of your arse.

Can't help but think your family think you are snobby and pretentious.

imip Sun 27-Mar-16 07:32:25

Personally I find patisserie Valerie very mainstream and I prefer something from our local independent hipster bakery tbugrin

holdonfor1moreday Sun 27-Mar-16 07:33:48

I'm not saying I'm better, or saying I'm rich as I prefer the aldi chocolate!

I guess I am bu - thanks I'm suffering from heart being on for too many hours.

Tbh, I can agree with you on some level. I feel the same about some members of my own extended family. But I'm sure they think I'm being a snob !

Thanks, that's all I was looking for on here smile
