Premium membership snobbery in General geocaching topics Posted July 27, 2011 Is it condescending for a student who is trying to pay for collage to work at Starbucks in order to earn money? How is working for money condescending. Are you a communist? (not an insult, a real question) If not, I reall don't know where you are comming from. Working for money has always given me a feeling of honour. I could understand you suggesting that it was condescending if someone said they would give you a PM for nothing. If it was a genuine offer to someone that could actually come over and cut his grass and he left off the "For Pete's sake", then maybe not. But the post as written is condescending. No, there is nothing condescending about a student working at Starbucks and no I am not a communist. But I do recognize when someone is talking down to me.
