Dear Work Friend,

It's great that you love Harry Potter, even if I don't always understand what you're talking about. It's not even a big deal to me that you sometimes give me good-natured crap about not catching all of your references. What makes all of this kind of annoying is that you act proud that you've never seen a Star Wars movie.

Is this your logic?
Wildly popular media about wizards in school = cool
Wildly popular media about wizards in space = uncool

It would be fine if Star Wars just wasn't your thing, but you've never seen it and you act like you're special because you haven't. At least I read the Harry Potter books and saw the movies – initially *because * they were so popular but I liked them, too, just not enough to still remember the which house elf was which. I don't talk to you about Star Wars and I don't care if you never see any of the movies and you can rock on with being nerdy over Harry Potter forever, but I'm getting tired of you acting like everybody is supposed to love Harry Potter but you're totally hip because you wouldn't stoop so low as to enjoy Star Wars because it's popular and you need to be different. (Do you see where this makes no sense?)

My word that sounds annoying. :|

Being dumb and contrarian sometimes is like an intrinsic part of the condition of being a nerd

I'm sorry your coworker's an annoying jerk, OP. My condolences.

This sounds pretty obnoxious. Kudos to you for not snapping and saying something mean, because I'm not sure I'd be able to restrain myself if I had to deal with this every day.

Ugh, people like that are the worst. Sorry you have to deal with it, nonny.

Oh man that sounds annoying, sorry you have to put up with that.

I don't get people being proud about not having seen/read something popular either, it's really not an impressive feat?

I do things similar to that at times, but it's not a pride thing. It's more of a self-deprecating thing. Like "Yeah, I haven't seen THAT. What the hell is wrong with me? Hahaha *shrug*"
