"Pretentious"

Postby wiivile » Fri Nov 14, 2014 11:37 am

pre·ten·tious
prəˈten(t)SHəs/
adjective
adjective: pretentious

attempting to impress by affecting greater importance, talent, culture, etc., than is actually possessed.

I'm sorry, these bunch of yuppie rich kids need to get over themselves.

I'm a native New Yorker and can't stop laughing at this article.

"The thing is, Magnises isn’t actually a credit card. It operates as an extension of a pre-existing credit or debit account: A designated card’s magnetic-strip data is duplicated onto the Magnises card."

The card literally is nothing, just like the kid said.

That's a lot of people on a wait list just to pay hundreds of dollars for a cooler card on a preexisting account. I wish I had the amount of money it takes for all of my concerns to be so frivolous.

Who needs the most basic common sense or a modicum of self-awareness when you can pay someone to "curate" your life for you?

And for just $250/year?! Well, that's just a bargain!
