Unnecessary marital counselling from a thrice-divorced person is...?
April 26, 2014 3:58 AM Subscribe
Is there a word or a pithy turn of phrase that can be used to describe those who take it upon themselves to offer unsought critique, ridicule, counsel or lecture others for failings the listener doesn't really have when the counsellors themselves are dramatic examples of those failings? For example, how would you describe a penniless 47-year-old who loftily lectures others who are comfortably well off on how to manage their money, or an anti-vaxxer or Rob Ford supporter who sneers at those on the other side of these issues for being naive or ignorant? The best I can do is "obnoxiously unselfaware", but it seems to me there might be a better and more specific term.
