I heard these lines in several places -
Don't patronize me .
what does this exactly mean? Checked the definition on google.
But I couldn't get a feel for it.
The definition of patronize you need is the third one—to treat in a condescending manner, as though you were a not very smart or capable person.
tr.v. pa·tron·ized, pa·tron·iz·ing, pa·tron·iz·es
- To act as a patron to; support or sponsor: donors who patronize the orchestra.
- To go to as a customer, especially on a regular basis: We patronize the local diner.
- To treat in a condescending manner, often in showing interest or kindness that is insincere: felt she was being patronized by her supervisor.
As the first two definitions show, a sponsor or customer can be called a patron.
