Things that you consider déclassé Part 2

I remember there was a thread a few years ago that got filled up like a 5 dollar whore. Margarine is extremely déclassé. I haven't used it since about 1990. Drinking no-name beer. Buying clothes at Value Village. Anything else?

Buying used clothing or used anything is not declasse at all - you can get some great stuff. Just like all new stuff isn't necessarily good - a lot of crap.

"Blended families." Yes, I come from a blended family, i.e., grew up with half-siblings. IMO, it just never really works. There's always resentment. Get married, have kids, get divorced, OK. But do not have further kids with other spouses or GFs / BFs. Do not bring "uncles" and "aunts" into the home where your children live.

You can date, but do your fucking at the other person's house.

Maybe an unpopular opinion, but that's my opinion.

Having more money doesn't mean you have better manners or taste. If someone has cloth napkins, I recognize them as someone of a similar class background, but the important point is are you thoughtful in your interactions with others?

[quote]As has been mentioned, clothes today are all made in the same shithole sweatshops. It doesn't matter where you buy your clothes, they all came out of the same place.

Not true at a certain level, but it depends on how much it is worth to you. I can buy a tee-shirt made in Spain or Portugal for €15 - €50; a polo shirt for twice that; a pair of hand-made dress shoes for €60 - 200 (the later custom-fitted.) The design and construction quality is excellent, the materials top quality; clothes that will last not for a few wearings or maybe one season but for years. Clothes from Italy, the U.K.,, and other places the same (if at differing prices.) It's very much possible to buy quality clothes that don't come from the same clusters of sweatshops, but for buyers accustomed to a bag of tee-shirts for 9.99, or 3 polo shirts for 30, or a pair of leather-ish shoes for 26, they will grumble about sweatshops even as they pay twice and thrice and more for poorly made clothes if inferior materials at prices do low they don't have to think about buying them.

The person who made this comment hasn’t obviously never owned or trained many dogs.

If you want an obedient and safe animal, particularly a dog, it’s better to own one from young and train it while still little. Dogs, no matter their pedigree or personality, should be well-trained to be completely trustworthy.

It’s very altruistic and a fine thing to care for a rescue dog, and Inwouldnt discourage those who want to do it (unless they have children or other animals at home), but frankly there is always a risk of one turning on you, someone else, or another dog. You don’t know every detail of its background, then you can’t predict its actions or triggers. Just facts.

Then there’s dogs that need to do a job or perform a function, I.e. sheepdogs, hunting dogs, seeing/hearing dogs. They can’t be rescue.

I have to defend Dollar Tree. I wouldn't go for years, then finally did go with husband. It's wild. They have all kinds of things that are more expensive other places. I am not a coffee snob and I don't know how to make real coffee, but is instant bad for you? I've been using the dollar store instant coffee. We were buying the knock off frappachinos for my son, but then they stopped selling the ones in bottles and now only have cans. He says they're not as good.

I don't really want to give away this secret, but they sell overstock DVDs there, weird old ones. We buy them and then resell them on Ebay. They're a dollar!!!

Dollar Tree is crazy and amazing, all in one.

[quote]Those who're always talking about/photographing /posting food, meals, coffee, beer irritate me. I guess I find it vulgar. Boring, too.

Agreed, R177. Some people talk so much about food that I begin to see the wisdom in Victorian manners where among the topics never discussed at dinner was dinner itself. Talking about food while eating it was considered vulgar.

I don't mind people who post recipes - of things they actually make. Or people who post the occasional photo of a special meal or a meal in a special place, but don't carry on like it's your profession unless it actually is your real job, in which case fine. I will happily pass on the hour long explanation of personal coffee making technique and the lifelong hunt for the bean source of beans; likewise beer, wine, etc. I'm glad other people enjoy them as much as they do, but some people enjoy a good shit or a good wank and I don't care to spend hours talking about their passion with them.

The wannabe women "foodies" who can work "with a nice glass of wine" into any sentence bug the bejesus out of me because they always say it with a little smirk of wicked delight. You're a 55 year old woman pulling in a six-figure income and your husband makes way fucking more: who the fuck is stopping you from having a glass of wine? Have a whole fucking bottle if you want? As for its niceness, spend yourself broke with your nice wine if you want, what do I care?

R178 my absolute raging cunt of a younger cousin is now a freelance food ‘journalist’ (blogger/Twitwit, but he refuses to call it that). Funny thing is, he used to be a raging teenaged anorexic (as well as a cunt). Guess this is his way of coping, or proving to the world that he’s functional, or something.

Anyway, I refuse to follow his social media because all it consists of is bad food-related puns, smarmy remarks about restaurants or pro-chefs, dumb ‘how to’ spoof videos he makes of himself cooking, and links to his chatty banal website submissions or clickbait.

The only upside to his lifestyle that I can see is that he sometimes gets paid to eat out at certain places or to travel to a niche restaurant. Fair play, that’s a nice perk. Would get old after a while, though. Plus he’s from a rich family, so he could have done that quietly on his own dime if he wanted.

The new money trash in Calabasas always brags about "my personal shopper" while surgeons and other educated people go to Whole Foods, Ralph's, Wal-Mart, Cosco and, yes, even Dollar Tree in low key clothes and cars and don't say a word. Declasse is trying to "look rich". A very Kardashian or LA Persian look. My late partner was a renowned OBGYN and came from a good family with a 400 year old family tree and I NEVER saw him worry about brands, flashy clothes or cars, and he had no problem going (when his time and, sadly, his health allowed) to any shop. He taught me to find good grape leaves at Armenian markets, good saffron at Persian ones, and he liked the sounds and activity. He would say "this is where so much of life happens J...the trick is to see beyond your notions and be in the moment."

Pickle pizza. Seriously, this has been a thing for a while now if you haven't heard of it yet. A few pizza shops near me make it. It's generally just a standard white pizza with mozzarella (olive oil & garlic for the sauce) with pickles on it, but some use ranch dressing as the sauce instead.

I wanted to bake a batch of cookies with it to see if I could have myself a little Proustian madeleine moment (but trashy, obvs. because I am trash) but goddamn they are NOWHERE to be found.

Had a conversation the other day with a friend who 100% denies the role of advertising and government campaigning in people's lives (we were discussing vegetarianism and veganism and why people go, or don't go, that way). When asked for an example of a successful campaign that had really changed people's behaviour I thought of the anti-smoking messages in the 80s and 90s, aimed at kids. Those kids are now grown up and a lot of us consider smoking a viscerally disgusting and low-class habit, which is a sea change in comparison to its former total acceptability. I even remember seeing those anti-smoking ads on TV and thinking how lame they were. But hey what do you know smoking rates absolutely plunged and the idea of kissing a smoker now makes a lot of people retch.

R224 - not trashy in Europe. In fact, it's quite customary for educated people to smoke skins with their wine and coffee. And I am talking about professors, doctors and many intellectuals. When I tell them it's considered trashy in the US, they laugh at how "weird" we are. There is zero stigma about a cigarette with espresso or beer or a glass of wine in Europe. Pre-pandemic nearly everyone out with at any place ended the evening with a cigarette and a drink or coffee and these were not remotely trashy people.
