    Nothing wrong with having intelligence and success in a profession as a requirement in tastes. I have come across a lot stranger taste. For anyone who used the Jesus argument in earnest, just...no, lol

    Why does it matter what someone does for a living? I think being a carpenter sounds interesting.

    I'm a lawyer (and no its not "something worth being snobby about" as someone said, no profession is carte blanche for being judgemental) and my boyfriend works in a supermarket. And he is easily one of the smartest people I have ever met.

    Ha ha ha!!!

    He's a carpenter? Well he's doing much better than you - you've wasted an education to become a teacher! The ultimate failure.

    those who can do, those who cant teach.

    Had you said you were working in a bank/law firm/medicine or something worth being snobbish abiout thats a different matter.

    At least he's doing something productive! You went to a red brick - lol, you could have done a college course at the local adult college to teach kids crap off the national curriculum.

    To be honest I wonder why on earth he'd be seen dead with you! Imagine the embarrassment when he tells his mates he's goign out with a public sector blagger...

    Real professionals putting in 100 hour weeks wouldn't spit on you if you were on fire let alone go on a date.

    Be realistic and date another teacher - you'll never have anything in common with people who work for a living.
    LOL! Now that's a ROASTING

    Genuinely made me giggle tehe. The fact you had to ask puts you in the rare bracket of a snob wannabe; someone who has a superior complex for invalid and stupid reasons. megalolz. Get off your high horse. Carpenters are good with their handssss!

    Jesus Christ, that was a bit unnecessary. Teachers work hard planning lessons and marking essays and workbooks every night. If it weren't for teachers you'd be spling liek dis reet naow. It's the people who teach that help to get you into the good unis so you can actually go into law and medicine. They have ambitions to help and work with children- that's a respectable thing to be doing. Not everyone has power issues like you.

    This is utterly uncalled for. I agree that the impression given off by the little we know of the poster isn't the best in the world but you are way out of line.

    Work on being less judgemental of someone who has asked for help and get your act together. You should be ashamed.

    I think it is probably a bit snobby.

    That sort of attitude is why every attempt at reform of our education system has failed. Teachers have taught successive generations that if you become carpenter you haven't amounted to anything. It takes years of training and aptitude for maths to become a carpenter. Trades such as that are a perfectly fine outcome for a young person.

    When an entire construction site is waiting for the site carpenter to finish fabricating the structures to pour concrete, I don't think the chartered Civil Engineer who designed the structure, for example, would be so dismissive of a carpenter.

    Thomas Chippendale, for example, did pretty well out of it.

    That sounded really harsh, and I'm not even angry.

    Seriously? Its spot on.

    teachers always, always marry teachers - who else gets half terms and school holidays and its an unsackable pretend job. They all go on holiday together or sit in the pub talking about how underpaid they are, or how they are "doing it for the kids". What a load of crap. Teachers are career failures or professionals looking to retire with an easy life.

    Carpentry is a great skill to have.

    Although if he's just doing some odd job woodwork because he has no other skills then damn, I could forgive you for looking down on him. Like making rickety stools or something.

    Teachers are some of the most under-appreciated people in society. Our entire way of life is dependant on education - society needs people to educate the young into productive members of society. I know a great number of teachers and many of them are, without a doubt, brilliant, hard working people.

    Now I do not think much of your generalisations and assumptions; you have clearly someone who has preconceived notions about people because of their occupation and that makes you more of a snob than the thread starter.
