Confession: I'm a party snob sometimes, too

So remember in this post when I told you about the different party snobs I often run into when I'm out? They're B.O.B's (Better Offer Bitches), as Tiff likes to call them. Well, I've recently noticed that I, too, can be a party snob. (Hard to imagine, I know).

Just like B.O.B's, the bitchiness usually doesn't come from a mean place, but an insecure place. Sometimes I won't bother saying "hi" to someone for the simple fact that I'm not sure how they will react. Will they give me a quick half-hug and air kiss, and then slink away? Or will they be genuinely happy to see me? It's just a crap shoot really. You never know what mood people will be in when you see them out. So, sometimes as a defense mechanism, I snub people, too.

Sometimes I just cannot deal with social rejection, no matter how many vodka tonics I've had to drink that night. I usually walk into parties feeling a wee-bit insecure about what I'm wearing, so when someone totally ices me at a party, I feel even lower. It is not a fun feeling. Oh why can't I just be a stone cold bitch like Blair Waldorf?!

Has anyone else ever acted like a snob, just so they wouldn't have to deal with one? Please tell me I'm not the only one!


  1. don't worry, you are not. at all. we all do that!! or at least i do and i tell myself everyone else does too...either way.

  2. Phew, glad I'm not the only one! Sometimes there's just no getting around those awkward run-ins.
