- Using words like earthy, nutty, complex, or oakey to detail your drinking experience. They're f-ing grapes.
- Molesting the glass of wine before drinking it. Caressing the glass while you stare at it and then you start swirling it, tilting it, sticking your face in it. Get a room.
- Swishing it in your mouth like Listerine
- Disguising your nightly drinking of wine as a connoisseur instead of just wanting to get blitzed because your life sucks
- Talking about the life of a grape by describing how it has over come adversity, like it's MLK.
- Not having a scientifically modified super palette, but still purchasing $1000 bottles because you can tell the difference
- Using wine paring expertise to convince you there is a perfect wine to go with your Froot Loops.

If you own any of these items or think they are cool, you are not:
- Divoga Managers Chair. Features a slim profile, chrome base, and eggshell colored faux leather with lumbar support and padded armrest
- Fake bullet holes and baseball through glass sticker for cars. These look really stupid and if you have one of these stickers you should remove it immediately
- Taking submissions at firstname.lastname@example.org for more uncool products

- Everyone knows that you will probably have to take your shoes off when going through security at a U.S. airport. Therefore, WHY wear knee high lace up boots that take 20 minutes to get off?
- Trying to put a full-size suit case into a small plane's overhead.
- Arguing with the gate agent that you should board early with the frequent fliers because in 1980 you were a frequent flier.
- Using your cell phone on the plane before take-off and making sure everyone on the plane can hear you.
- Getting out of your seat when the plane lands and getting your overhead items before the fasten seat belt sign is off. Do you really need a head-start?

- People who wear calculator watches. I actually see people wearing these in actual work meetings. There is no excuse for this. They were only cool for about 1 week about 25 years ago.
- Shoes and belt colors that do not match. I am a guy and even get this one.
- Short sleeve dress shirts. It is not a dress shirt if it is short sleeved. It looks ridiculous. I don't care if you live in Florida.
- Worse....wearing a tie with a short sleeved shirt
- Patchwork pants. I actually saw this once. At work. When we teased you we were not kidding. They looked moronic.
- Jean shorts (jorts)
- Sleeveless shirts. This is not normal behavior.
- Double denim. Jean jackets with jeans. Not cool.
- Bow ties. If your not wearing a tux you shouldn't be wearing a bow tie.
- A picture of your animal printed on your shirt. Very uncool.
- Socks with Sandals
- Crocs on men. I don't really get the purpose of those things.
