The Quality of the People

21 Sep

I may have a new most hated phrase: “the quality of the people”. At lunch today I overheard a woman was talking about how she and her husband had considered moving somewhere with a lower cost of living, but ended up deciding against it because of “the quality of the people.”

She seemed to mean that they had different beliefs and less money than she did. Somehow, that made them all of too low a quality for her to want to raise her children around. I can understand the sentiment, but the word choice bugs the hell out of me.
