"I don't mean to be patronising …"

Over at A TCS Blog, Emma (who commented on the post below) has a charming description of attending a Promenade Concert, an event which coincidentally I also gave some attention to.

The killer line in Emma's description for our purposes here was this, concerning a rather officious member of the audience who was telling other people what was what in a very stupid way:

"I'm a school teacher. I don't mean to be patronising; I just like telling people things they might want to know."

Indeed.
