  • you say you went to 'the university of life'
  • you are proud of the fact that you haven't finished a book since high school
  • you are disrespectful and entitled towards those who work in the service industry
  • you let your children act rude and disruptive in public places
  • your children are permanently glued to sticky ipads with 'child friendly' rubbery covers
  • you ask whether someone you have just met is a catholic or a protestant out of context, or, failing that, what school they went to, which is the same question
  • you loudly proclaim your oh-so-enlightened opinions on the related conflict, listeners be damned
  • you post RIP statuses on facebook when someone has died, rather than pay your respects in person
