I can’t believe how pretentious or self-important my Uncle Hilbert from England is. He thinks he’s the world authority on English literature but is constantly misquoting lines and mixing up authors, during which time he has his nose in the air in his pretentious and snobby way. I remember one day I told this pretentious person who thought he was so great that most of the time he’s wrong about what he says, and he brushed me off, saying that I was just a little pipsqueak.
