What haughty things did you do as a child?

I refused to touch the food in the school cafeteria and would loudly ask those who did if their mothers shopped at KMart.

I was on a transfer to a school in a poorer school district for reasons, and used the fact that my house was bigger and nicer to generate an entire ridiculous backstory of untold riches, rare statues, and jewel thieves.

I would never eat chicken that I had to “pick up with my hands” ie fried chicken, chicken wings.

Not me, but a pretentious country club classmate in 8th grade asked the cafeteria workers why they didn't "chill the salad forks". She was a hero to me for that.

My mom always said that women who made stuff like Shake N Bake and Hamburger Helper were tacky. I used to get all judgy (silently) if I I went to someone's house and they served anything less than 100% from scratch dinners.

I'd ask a poorly dressed classmate if her outfit was from sacks.

She'd reply, no, it's from Sears.

Looks like it's from sacks to me, I'd reply.

After I was sent to the principal's office and reprimanded in 4th grade (think I'd dawdled picking up the attendance forms or something as a proctor) I was completely insulted and incensed. I marched back to my classroom, went to the cloakroom, picked up my coat and walked out without a word to anyone.. When I got home I told my mother I would not be returning to school--ever.

I would only drink out of goblets, and demanded I have formal place settings. This was habit was picked up from my very formal German grandparents. My parents struck a deal with me that I could have whatever I wanted place setting wise, if I agreed to always set the table for everyone, including my extravagant needs, and I always had to clean everything I used from the formal dining objects I was using. Seemed fair enough. I still always set my table formally.

My toys came from FAO Schwarz, mostly from Germany. I thought television advertised toys were vulgar, and I was not shy about letting others know it.

A subset of that: I thought Barbie was a whore. Any girl who played with Barbie would not come to a good end. I wasn't shy about expressing that either.

R43, in my case , no. I did a show-and-tell in the third grade on my doll collection (fine antique dolls, not Barbie or Madame Alexander). I collected first editions of the Wizard of Oz books. If I went to the movies, it was to a revival house to see something by Busby Berkeley or Lillian Gish.

[quote]I would only drink out of goblets, and demanded I have formal place settings.

I thought I was the only one who did that. We owned a very expensive, very beautiful set of imported blue cobalt wine goblets, which were only used on special dining occasions. Except in my case. The only way I'd drink my milk was if it were served in one of the cobalt goblets—and my parents actually allowed this! I wouldn't have put up with that shit for a second if I had been them, but I really was an adorable child, albeit one given to making grand entrances and exits for dramatic effect. Surprisingly, I turned out to be quite normal.

As a child I wasn't comfortable wearing shirts without a collar. Luckily it was the 80s so polo shirts were readily available, but most of my classmates were slumming it in graphic t-shirts. You also never would have caught me barefoot outside the house or swimming- I detested having dirty feet!

I ran away from home when my parents refused to give me piano lessons. When they relented I learned my fingers were too small for the keys.

by Anonymousreply 5902/25/2019

I was never allowed piano lessons, so I drew and taped together a paper keyboard, and spent years in my room pretending to play. I pestered my friends who took lessons, and tried to make them teach me things. Of course they wouldn't, because they hated taking piano. I had the same obsession with ballet, and did the same kinds of things, practicing my positions, flouncing and leaping around my room year after year. Every railing was my "barre." Pathetic, I know. (The family could have afforded it, but my mother loathed me and favored my "normal" brother.)

The haughty bit was the way, for years, I pretended I'd had lessons in both, and would sigh knowingly and compliment the efforts of other kids, as if I were a retired professional.

haha...that's great. Some teachers are true cunts, nothing more obnoxious than a teacher who thinks they're still in the classroom when they're not. Yes, you're sooo important because you're in charge of 30 ten year olds and dictate to them 5 days a week, but when you're outta school you're nobody, on a nobody wage.

R26, you are correct. I'm into leather, but I tend to agree with you about the veracity of these accounts. Still, they're as funny as all hell. I love The Data Lounge.

As for me, well I can be haughty, and I remember being aghast at how the other half lived when I was a kid. A choice bon mot from yesteryear? Alas, I can remember none. But I can remember having fun with an acquaintance of my Mom, when she would call. The lady in question would ask to speak to my mother by using her first name. I would respond very haughtily, "Mrs. So and So is not available. May I take a message?" I soon had the dear lady referring to my mother by her honorific and surname.

More recently, a bank teller called me by my first name. I reeled back and responded, "Are you a close friend or relative? How dare you call me by my Christian name without my permission!" It was great fun, and the next time I came into the bank,I confessed to the teller that I was having some fun. He now calls me "Mr. So and So." And he must think of me as "That Arsehole!" Ha!!

Regarding teachers. I know quite a few of them. To the point where I was asked to participate in program reviews in different schools around the state.

One school - we were reviewing a class that was teaching kids the MS Office suite. I noted they were doing a payroll sheet and they had a crib sheet given them by the teacher for the taxes etc.

I asked the teacher if they were ever going to cover entering a formula in a cell (They were using Excel) or perhaps even some VBA? What the teacher said floored me, "Oh that's computer programming and you need advanced math for that." I duly noted this comment in my report and said "No you don't need what I would consider advanced mathematics. All you need is understanding different number systems (Base 2, 8, 10, 16) and Algebra I. That's it - if you take Trig you could have an easier time with game programming but that's the extent.

I got a really nice letter from the state Department of Education for that one - they said it was honest and accurate and thanked me for the time I spent doing program reviews.
