    The premise is pretty simple.
    Ever heard someone say something obnoxious? Something so incredibly douchey and pretentious that has just made you put down your monocle and champagne and think "My word, they really need to get off their high horse"?

    Well now's your chance to share. It might have been something your friends said, something you overheard or even something you yourself have said before realising how pretentious it sounded.

    Some context can be provided if needed, but out-of-context quotes somehow seem to make everything funnier so bonus points for that.

    I'll get us started:

    "You don't want to do too well in your assessments. Employers might get intimidated and think you're over-qualified for the job"
    - Dude from my Engineering course

    Is that a bad thing?
    I need to re-evaluate my life.

    I'm doing that too, kind off. Not taking notes, but I always find good summaries of my lessons on the internet. It's not on a pretentious purpose, it's just lazyness :lol:
