What are your thoughts about a person who constantly braggs everything they have and do way up?

Her: This is the best house on the market(it's a trailor)
Her: Everyone in this town knows me and loves me(they either don't know her or talk pretty bad)
Her: This is a great computer it's really fast(it's a 10yo compac)
Her:This is a really nice truck it kicks ass(it's missing a cylinder,and the starter goes out)
Her: My 92 lebaron is better than your 2006 pontiac because it's a convertible(that speaks for itself!)

My point? Why do people do this? Then if anything good happens to you they put you down? Why?

  • sounds like she is trying to make light of her not so glam life. Just go with it. But if she is putting you down then its time to check her.

  • Insecure! My exh of 12 years ago still does this. I live in a small town own 3 vehicles, a home, been with my dh for 11 yrs, and am a college grad. He job hops to keep from paying support, has 3 kids with 3 woman, lost custody of 1, current wife is secretly leaving him, and he now stocks shelves at Walmart and doesn't want to look for a better job. But, I'm miserable and can't stand to see him happy! Go figure. Se la Vi.

  • That's all you could come up with 1208? Saying bitchy things and hiding behind it with "lol" did you come up with that all by yourself?

  • Aww... I actually feel really bad for this woman whoever she is!!! Don't let her get under your skin, she is obviously not doing so great so if "bragging" makes her feel better, let her! After all I think it's pretty obvious what the reality of her situation is. Just smile and nod, think of it as a good deed.

  • To make themselves feel better. Living in a trailor & driving a 1992 car is nothing to be bragging about, I would be

  • yeah there's a gal that did that to my hubby one time. he was talking about his four wheeler and then she went on about how her son's four wheeler was so much bigger! lol well...i honestly dont think she knew what brand is what. they just want people with nice stuff to feel smaller then them.

  • She doesn't feel good enough, so that's why she has to brag all the time, so she won't feel so down about herself.

  • Sounds like good old fashioned insecurity with a side of denial. Try to spend as little time as possible with this person and fill your life with quality people.
