Are you friends with snobbish people?
Some People who have it all a great job, money, a lovely home and family can be snobbish and not want to be with any other especially if they are not in the same standard of life what do you think of that?
You have put up a good question. My thoughts often go to this matter. Toward the snobbish people, I have no respect whatsoever and I feel rather a kind of pity for them. These are the people who are enemies of their own minds and souls. How can these people appreciate and enjoy the great consciousness of this wonderful planet if they are immune to the sensibilities of even humanity. They are proud in their own wells like frogs. Let them live as they like it and we must move on with our lives.
I really don't have snobbish friends persae, but I do have plenty of acquaintances. Either way, I try to show respect to everyone, no matter what their status in life is. It's good Karma!
In a word, no. That snobbish affect comes from the snob feeling he or she is better than others, and I can't stand that. I've been friends and acquaintances with people all over the socioeconomic spectrum. I myself am well below the US poverty level for income, my clothes are clearly well-worn, my hair and nails are a mess, and I always look a bit shabby. Looking exactly like this, I've had great conversations with multimillionaires (and one billionaire), yet been looked down on or talked down to by upper-middle-class snobs. The difference? People who will take the time to get to know me despite a very clear socioeconomic division acknowledge that everyone has value, and take each individual as they are. A snobbish person somehow thinks they're superior, because I'd clearly be doing as well as them if I were as good as them. I find that the friendly, open people know that every circumstance is different and doesn't discount the value of the individual. It's just a mindset that I can't relate to, and with which I certainly don't want to willingly put myself in contact. I try to be polite when I do meet these people, but I wouldn't consider them friends.
I know a few snobs, but would not consider them friends.
I avoid people who think themselves better than anyone else, which is not much of a problem, because that kind of person would think they are to good to talk to me and, avoid me.
That being said if a snob does talk to me, I would not be rude or unkind, unless they were rude or unkind to me. And in that case it is fun to put someone down gently.

Why are we nice to people we don't like?There are people I know, work with, etc., that I am nice to, but I don't like them at all. Why? Why can't I just say I don't like them so I don't have to make small talk? There are people I don't respect, so why must I act like I respect...

Do you have many friends, or more of a collection of acquaintances?I have very few true friends (my husband being the best one I have.) I have many social acquaintances that are fun to be around, but really don't count when the chips are down.
