Pretentious? Moi?

Today in the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford I overheard what has to be a contender for the most pretentious remark ever uttered:

Young geeky boy in sandals – ‘So why did you break up with her?’

Second young geeky boy, in retro-geek t-shirt – ‘She wasn’t sympathetic to my creative direction.’

I was sniggering quietly to myself at the outrageousness of this remark, before being caught up short by the memory of a statement of my own, just a few weeks ago, when I said IN A PUBLIC PLACE MIND YOU, ‘I consider thinking to be one of my main hobbies.’

So, can anyone outdo either of those?
