- He always comes across so holier-than-thou; and where does he get off doling out advice to people all the time as if he know’s best – uh, he’s so ____________ . What has he actually ever done is what I would like to know.
- His ____________ astounds me; just days after being outed as one of the most high profile and prolific drugs cheats of all time, he appears on a talk show demanding leniency. I can’t believe he had the nerve to show up let alone dismiss the notion that he should issue an apology.
- Must you always be so ____________ , Jane? At this rate we’ll do well to simply agree on a subject for our research project before the due date. How about a compromise?
- He became known in the business for his ____________ when it came to reviewing local eateries; he seldom showed them any mercy at all and was scathing in his criticism.
- Your ____________ brother has been sticking his nose in where it’s not wanted again. Tell him to stay out of the dispute; it’s a private matter.
- You have to stop ____________ to Mike, Sarah. Otherwise, he’ll end up feeling suffocated and will just want to escape; then you’ll lose him for good.
- The judge said that on account of the genuine ____________ shown by the witness he was going to impose a more lenient sentence.
- I can’t believe you had the ____________ to call your boss an idiot to his face, John. I mean, you can laugh about it now, sure, but you were lucky this time. How exactly will we cope if next time you lose your job?
- His ____________ is such that he wrote a damning review of her performance in his column despite privately admitting that he had seldom seen acting as fine. As usual, his hurt pride came before everything else.
