Why I’m a Snob (And I’m Okay With That)

I have a confession to make, but this isn’t really a secret, because most people learn this about me pretty quickly: I’m a snob for quality when it comes to almost anything. There’s exceptions to this, of course, but for the most part I’m pretty snobbish. When I can, I pay more to get the […]
