A column in Chicago Magazine states:
"Most Labbies are insufferable about their affiliation with Hyde Park's
legendary private school, constantly reminding the rest of us that
they're smarter and more confident and better connected than we are." (The Lab Mystique)
And indeed, it's objectively true. Especially during the current moment in history, when the school boasts all sorts of political connections. Completely insufferable.
But I'm not sure that Labbies are the worst of all when it comes to insufferable private school alums and parents -- at least not over time. For example, everyone knows that Latin alums and parents are (most of them) complete jerks. And Parker? Well, there's a reason that school experienced one of the city's first swine flu outbreaks. Parker alums and parents are the worst of all.
