This is a question Inflated Self-Importance

Amorous Badger asks: Tell us tales of people who have a high opinion of themselves. Jumped-up officials, the mad old bloke who runs the Neighbourhood Watch like it's a military operation, Colonel Blimps, pompous bastards and people stuck up their own arse.

As sometimes happens
a few guys were sitting at the bar a little ways away from me, talking about the imminent layoffs at their company due to technology advances. I could definitely sympathize as I know many people who've lost jobs because technology had rendered them obsolete.

One in particular took a deep gulp of his pint. "When we walk out the door they're going to lose over sixty years' experience instantly! Who else can braid a Type 3A in less than twenty minutes? When they can't keep up with the demand for buggy whips they'll be begging us to come back!" And he thumped his glass on the bar for emphasis, to the approval of his fellow braiders.

I raised my whisky in silent solidarity.
