52 Types of People Who Think They Are Better Than You

Time from time, we come across lovely messages sent by our loyal readers from all over the world. (A little exaggerating you might think but it’s true; we have roughly about 23 regular readers around the Globe) Among the messages that we received, one caught our attention. This email said some people here in Myanmar are extremely delusional that they think they are better than the rest of the world and act like it without any particular reason or a remotely sensible logic whatsoever behind such behavior. Intrigued, we at Mohinga Matters decided to get to the root of the problem at once.

And now, we have come up with a list of reasons on why some people in Myanmar might think they are better than all the other human beings on earth. Please take a hard look at the list and let us know if it makes sense or if we miss out obvious points.

So, here we go. Some people in Myanmar think they are better than most of us and that might be because (it helps if you read this sentence before you read out each reason from the list)
