Snobs are a common part of high school and even after. A snob is a person who believes themselves to be better than others and lets everybody know it. These people are hard to avoid because, most likely, you will encounter them in most aspects of your life. They are in school with you, at work with you, in your neighborhood with you and sometimes right under your nose.
I have had personal experience in dealing with a snob while I was in high school. Once I thought I had rid myself of her for good, she showed up at the college I was attending. She was one of those girls, who somehow got the notion that she was something special. Generally, she spent her time talking about people behind their backs, spreading rumors and even talking about her friends when they weren’t around. Honestly, she wasn’t much to look at, though she thought she was. It wasn’t until I heard her make comments about one of my friends who had recently “came out”, that I really had enough of her. She proceeded to tell a bunch of people that my friend was gay, before she had the opportunity to tell people herself. The snob obviously had run out of things to spread around about her own friends so she moved in on one of mine. Rather than find her and punch her in the face (which I really, really wanted to), I just told myself that her life was too meaningless to talk about so she had to talk about the lives of others.
Snobs are hard to deal with but you must always remember that they are lacking an element of self esteem and they most likely don’t like themselves. It’s hard, at times, not to act out against people like this but you must remember to be the bigger person. Karma will always get them back. The snob I had mentioned before frequently made comments about other peoples’ weight. She ended up gaining at least twenty pounds after high school.
The best way to deal with snobs is to not deal with them at all. Sooner or later, karma will step in. Acting like their meaningless rambles mean nothing to you will bother them more than anything. The common snob feeds off of people getting angry with them. If you just act like they are of no more importance than the dirt under your feet, they will leave you alone and move on to somebody else. People who always talk about other people have no self-esteem regardless of what they act like. They probably hate themselves and for good reason, they are not good people. If somebody has to tell everybody how great they are, in reality, they probably aren’t great at all. Stop letting snobs get in your way. They will get what they deserve in the end.
