I felt like hitting him with a broom on the mouth. Such a wanker, he is the sort of person who puts me from talking about bands in the real world.
there's a guy like that at my work, people think he's someone who knows a lot about music, but that's only because he goes out of his way to create that impression of himself, but all he knows about is top 40, and the british indie bands who verge on that.
