We are originally from Louisville but haven't lived there in many years. Our friends who still live there in the Highlands, often refer to themselves as "Highlands Snobs." Is this something people who live in the Highlands call themselves? I had never heard this expression until they started using it.

I've never ever heard that before. That's a little weird they would call themselves that.

A little tongue-in-cheek, I think. Everyone recognizes that as a unique place in Louisville.

That may mean they won't live anywhere else. I know some "brand snobs", they will only use certain brands of certain things. Could that be what they mean?

You're probably right... They won't even go to restaurants in other parts of town or even downtown to the theater.

It could be, but either way I wouldn't go around calling myself an "East End Snob", people would probably think I was stuck up.

Wow, that is incredibly provinicial, even for the East End.

BTW, there was a punk/new wave song called East End Boys from one of the local punk bands back in the late 1970s. Let's just say it wasn't flattering.

yeah i think snob would be the wrong word. they could maybe consider themselves a "highlands only" family if they only stay in the highlands. i think it's fine if people only want to shop/eat in their end of town (a little weird, since i would like all of louisville to be appreciated), but nonetheless, snob seems to be the wrong word here.
