can't get it in one word - but in a brief sentence, how about treats you like a servant

or maybe Lord of the Manor complex?

patronising.

Oops sorry, didn't read your last post. Lording it over you. Don't think you can "lady" it over someone.

What about egotist - this is someone who has:

1) an inflated sense of self-importance or superiority
2) excessive reference to oneself
3) self-centredness

As per my thesaurus.

pre-eminent?
supercilious?
disdainful?
haughty?
arrogant?
vainglorious?

I like this game

I immediately think she believes she's like the sun - she brightens your day by her mere presence, and thinks the entire universe revolves around her!

Condescending?

Sounds like she's a combination of about 3 or 4 words, which i won't use on a Laydee's site.

This is fun - all the joy of slagging someone off without actually committing the crime of doing it

could you say she has a "sense of entitlement"?

anorak Sat 19-Mar-05 14:39:04

Regal?

jampots Sat 19-Mar-05 14:39:56

Queenly?

Earlybird Sat 19-Mar-05 14:41:11

omnipotent?

Grandious (sp) Grandeous (sp) Was once called this by the Finance Director of a Company I worked for and don't think it was a compliment

Glad to help! I suppose if you really wanted to be tough you could say she has a pompous sense of entitlement!

I knew someone like this once - she really believed she deserved everything! Used to really get under my skin!
