Which city, IYE, seems to have the most snobs or people who are snobby about their city? I guess those that look down on common things or chains, those that look down on other cities/other parts of the country, those that constantly bang on about how superior their city is, how cultured it is.etc, those whose lives revolve around art gallery showings, who sit around in expensive restaurants, cafes or country clubs talking about stocks - or conversely even working class folks who think their city is the bees knees. I guess a mix of generally being stuck up in personality and being a snob ABOUT their city.

Seems like a lot of suburbs are like this.

This thread is going to turn ugly pretty easily.

All I will say is that Hawaii/Honolulu definitely deserves to be on the list as it's arguably the worst. You should included it instead of wasting an option with St. Louis.

Maybe it might have something to due with the fact that I don't take part in it's discussion much but I barely see people from St. Louis acting like it's the greatest place in the universe and is superior to everybody.

Who's the joker that voted for St. Louis? That had to have been a joke.

And why isn't Austin on this list?

San Francisco without question. It's the only place I've been to in the world so far where they asked me if I was happy to be there. Most people in other places would ask if I was enjoying myself...

San Francisco. You must buy bikes and bike up impossible hills and do weird things and be unique or else you are weird.
