Sore point. I got soundly told off this afternoon for coming back home with a sweatshirt I'd just bought: Her: You bought a *sweatshirt*? A sweatshirt? What on earth were you thinking of? Me (defensively): It was only twenty pounds. It was in a sale. It's 100% cotton. Her: Twenty pounds for this horrid thing? A sweatshirt? You think I'm going to let you wear a sweatshirt? You're taking it back. Me: What's wrong with it? Her: A sweatshirt? You'll be buying a tracksuit next, like those people who clean their cars on Sundays. You're taking it back. Me: It's only to wear at home. Her: No it isn't. I'm not having leisure-wear in this house. I'm going to keep it anyway. She's such a snob.
