Honestly, I'd be less likely to be outraged if she talked about judging the kids' parents, and not the CHILDREN THEMSELVES.
I also can't stomach how there are the good names, and then "children like those" in her world... and yet, India doesn't count as a place name :/ and what the heck is wrong with Simon? I've always considered Simon to be kind of an upper-crust British name (more common in England than Canada, but that's just the vibe I've gotten).
This woman just dug herself in to a deeper and deeper hole. I admit, I kind of enjoyed watcher her make a fool of herself. My blood boiled, but I mostly had second-hand embarrassment.Lucia

"Chav" isn't a term I hear used in America, though I've heard it a good deal on the forums as well as the American slurs "red neck" and "white trash" and plain "trashy." I'm afraid I'm a bit prickly on the subject, but I do admit that I bristle at the stereotypes.

Not going to lie, I do judge people on the names they give their children. But I wouldn't judge a child because of the name their parents gave them. I certainly wouldn't want my child to be so shallow to dislike someone because of their name.Girls:

Well, I'm probably too lowborn for someone like her. But, as we say around these parts: "An ounce of pretension is worth a pound of manure."Current Favorites
