A social climber is someone who seeks social prominence by obsequious behavior. Some define it as a parvenu, one who has suddenly risen to a higher economic status but has not gained social acceptance of others in that class. The accusation of being a social climber would be considered an insult by most, suggesting that the accused has a poor work ethic or is disloyal to his roots.

Do you know anyone? How do you feel for these people?

Many parvenus are increasing in our society today. Although one may take it as an insult, but from my perspective, it's really not. In the end, a great success of a career or achievement depends within many connections. Accomplishing solely through hard-work or talent is rare. A fatuous thought, in most cases.

@Eudd: dude you here in the Phils. we call that "padrino" system... it's where a family friend's friend's friend's uncle's cousin recommends you to a job because he knows the manager's wife's uncle. However it doesn't bode well for the average joes like me because of the uneven playing field. that's why we have to resort to gifts of roast chicken or whiskey just to get an interview.

mayb those social climbers tot tat is the fastest way to success...
others may feel tat those social climbers are being unfair to them but there is nth u can do abt it rite??
so i guess other than accepting it, there is no way to stop it from happening as it is everywhere n those social climbers voluntarily wanted to do it themselves eventhough they need to suck up to those elite ones
