Have you ever gone to visit a town or city and felt out of place among the residents?
Maybe you grew up in the Midwest and were overwhelmed with the hustle and bustle of life in Washington D.C.
Or maybe… just maybe… you’ve visited one of these cities that are known for having the “snobbiest” residents in all of America.
New York City, New York
A video recently went viral of New York City millennials traveling the “distance” to New Jersey in order to try the food at a local Cracker Barrel for the first time.
While most Americans love a good Cracker Barrel breakfast – the video showed the New Yorkers critiquing the food – calling it “sad” and comparing their hearty meals to “cafeteria food.”
Give us a break.
But the reality is, New Yorkers are some of the most intense foodies in the nation – and not only are they food snobs – but they’ll even shame you for *gasp* doing something as outrageous as ordering Domino’s pizza.
The New York Post reported:
“I’m no stranger to being on the receiving end of rotten remarks. For years, before I had to give it up for health reasons, my fellow New Yorkers shamed me for eating Domino’s pizza on the regular…
“Domino’s? In NYC?!” Instagram followers would say when I posted a pizza picture, as if I were committing some kind of horrible crime. New Yorkers set very arbitrary rules for food and eating, and if you don’t follow them, they’re quick to condemn you.”
We get it.
Millennials like to sip bone broth and are proud of their exquisite palate– but when they start looking down on everyday Americans – it crosses a whole new level.
Here’s the thing about Washington, D.C. – EVERYONE thinks they are important there.
From the House intern proudly wearing his badge on the metro so everyone can see it – to the junior level staffer working in the White House.
And because people in DC feel they are “so important” – their elitist attitude trickles down to everyone else around them.
They get frustrated at the homeschooling families who visit “their city” and “get in their way” by not standing on the proper side of the metro so they can get to their “important” meeting.
In fact, one report from Thrillist voted DC as the snobbiest city on the entire East Coast – and even did a piece highlighting the different types of DC snobs – because there are so many!
“The Incredibly Lazy Snob
Entitled, well-heeled, and absolutely incapable of doing a menial task on their own, the Incredibly Lazy Snob won’t lift a finger. Unless it’s to push an app that will deliver a private driver, freshly folded laundry, or groceries to their door. Is there an app for belittling delivery people for poor service?…
The Coffee Snob
Um, pour-over coffee. Please… child’s play. It’s all about the siphon! Or the Chemex! Or some other method they’ll belittle you for not knowing. But — can’t you taste the nuttiness? Of course you can’t. Go back to your pumpkin spices, you rube.”
Of course – what these young staffers fail to realize is that their “powerful job” could be gone in a heartbeat when WE the VOTERS vote their boss out of office!
Palo Alto, California
Taking it over to the West Coast, Palo Alto is known for its “snobby” and elitist residents.
Located just 1.7 miles from Stanford University – this isn’t too surprising.
Residents here are known to be some of the most educated in the nation – and with over 70 percent of them voting Democrat – one can only imagine how these “educated elite” are just dying to school us simple folks.
The problem isn’t having a good education…
… it’s when people think they’re better than the rest of Americans because they have a degree from a certain school.
The reality is – all kinds of people make up this great nation.
From farmers to plumbers, to homeschooling moms and hunters – America is full of people chasing the American dream and wanting to make the best decisions for their families.
But the bubbles many residents in these “snobby” cities live in can’t be penetrated – and anything that goes against their beliefs is deemed “offensive.”
So if you happen to visit one of these cities – be prepared – but go ahead and rock your “Trump is still my President” hat with pride – and know the true heart and soul of this country was built on grit and hard work.
