A person, male or female, who cannot wear denim priced less than $200 per item. These people also denegrate the character of people who do not wear 'high-end denim' as tastless, fashion ignorant boobs. Ironically, the denim snob prefers denim that looks like it's been run through the ass end of a wood chipper or paint factory. The denim snob will wear their expensive denim all year round, and with any item, preferrably too-tight t-shirts.
I love Hannah, but she is such a denim snob. We're going broke. We don't have anything to eat, but there's plenty of jeans. Too bad we can't eat jeans for dinner.
When, in the world of web design and development, your domain name
by another person or company without your knowledge.
When a domain/hosting company forces long-term hosting packages on you for a cheap domain price.
When your web developer or designer owns your domain name and won't give it to you without paying through the nose.
I wanted to change web designers, and the dude who has been working on my site for the past 3 years owns the freakin name. I'm so domain fucked it's not funny.
A person who, for whatever reason, is addicted to buying pre-paid cell phone SIM cards rather than buying a mobile phone with a contract.
This person will usually have a pocket jammed tight with SIM cards and a really shitty looking unlocked phone. When one SIM card runs out of minutes, they will swap out the exhausted SIM, and run the next one until it's completely spent, and continue this pathetic practice day after day.
Many a fake hustler, fledgling entrepreneurs, drug dealers, teens, Playas and pimps have this in common. Seeming to be in one area code and then another one in less than 5 minutes impresses some weak-minded folks.
Ian is such a SIMwhore, he's got 10 SIM cards with 10 different area codes and 2 beat-to-death Nokia cell phones. I can never reach him from one day to the next.
