Am I A Snob? 

by Maxim Porges @ 7:20 PM | Link | Feedback (3)

According to a recent study, Mac users are snobs (urban dictionary definition here for the sake of this blog post).

Apparently, according to the study, most Mac users tend to also:

- Buy teeth-whitening products
- Buy organic food
- Pay for music online
- Be perfectionists

So how do I fit based upon the article?

- I own Sensodyne Whitening toothpaste. I bought it primarily because I have sensitive teeth, but I opted for the whitening kind so I'd say this is an affirmative.

- Most of the food I buy is not organic. Then again, I always buy free range eggs (chickens may be stupid, but they deserve to run around if we're going to steal and eat their unborn young).

- I pay for music online almost exclusively. My time is worth more than to dick around with Kazaa or Limewire.

- I have been accused repetitively of being a perfectionist, although if most of my coworkers saw the state of my house they would probably retract their accusations. So, at the very least, I'm apparently a perfectionist at work.

Urban Dictionary has the shortest snob definition as follows: "Anyone who thinks they are better than someone else based upon superficial factors."

Now, I obviously like the Mac better because my last three computers have been Apple products, but I don't think I fall in to the "snob" category. I don't think that I am better than other people because I use a Mac - if I did, I would agree. But then again, this is me evaluating myself.

So if you know me and you follow my blog, what do you think? Am I a snobby, Mac-owning bastard? Sound off in the comments.
