A Moment of Classism from Dean Winchester

I'm rewatching 9.06, Heaven Can't Wait, and this moment stuck out at me:

Dean finds Castiel working at a gas station store, and says to him: "This is not you, man. You are above this."

Um, Dean shops heavily at gas station stores. Who does he think works at them and keeps them up and running - inferior people?

It particularly startles be because I was very involved in SPN fandom in S9-S10, and I don't remember anyone pointing out this particular moment. As a Sam fan, I sometimes got tired of Dean fans who perceived Sam as classist and Dean not. This moment definitely shows that Dean can be classist with the best of them.
