Petty psychology

I’ve decided to list my return address on job applications as “St. Louis” rather than “Clayton,” since the USPS says either is acceptable, and the six people who know the difference might think I was some sort of rich snob otherwise.

I freely admit to snobbery (I do put "Dr." on my frequent flyer accounts and hotel reservations, after all), but I’m afraid I’m not rich—else I’d be living in the Central West End or the Washington Avenue loft district.

Or Clayton. Those are million dollar homes north of Maryland, you know.

You earned the “Dr.” title, so put it.

I don’t know the first thing about Clayton, MO, but my guess is it might be a bit similar to those who can put Memphis or Germantown (38138), so they put Germantown. Again, you’re paying, be a snob.

Don’t know if I told you Annie and I bought a house (just off White Station, a tad north of Walnut Grove). Only a minute and $160K of assessed value away from Jerry Lawler…


Brian J.: fo’ shizzle.
