Everybody at least one thing they can brag about. And try as we might, there are always instances where all we want is to slip that piece of information into a conversation. But what is the right technique to work a in a humblebrag? These Redditors will tell you.
u/HoldMeDownSanta asked: What's one humble brag you always like to slide into conversation?
I mean hey, it's a free $30.
Back in the 30s a distant relative wrote a song that happened to get a dozen different covers during the 40s and 50s... and it was just the right style for Fallout's radio stations. Thanks to Disney's never-ending quest to make copyrights last forever... here I am nearly 100 years later collecting about $30 a month.
It makes my taxes a pain in the butt, though. Schedule E for rental properties and royalties made it so I couldn't do simple filing EVER.
It's a weird thing to have, and so I try to slip it into conversations because it's something fun to talk about.
I be flossin'.Giphy
I floss every day. That's right, every single day!
That's is actually quite impressive.
"Did I stutter?" I have a bad stutter, so this helps assert dominance. Works. Every. Time. It's how I actually met my girlfriend, I used that line and she laughed so hard she gave me her number
Bro that's a power move if I ever heard of one GG
Now THAT'S skill.Giphy
I've ridden all 47 rides at Disney World in a single day without any sort of VIP tour cheating.
The freelance writer grind...
That I'm a freelance writer and I'm not allowed to disclose some of the people I've written for... you know, since you asked.
What was it like writing for a well known 90's TV show actor?
Now THAT'S cool.
I have an asteroid named after me for my contributions on a currently flying space mission.
I mean, it isn't a big asteroid... but it's a little proof that I've launched at least one thing into space.
Bold and brash.Giphy
My Master's degree in clarinet performance. Just because it was so d*mn difficult and would probably never get me a pay rise either. But I started it and finished it. So proud of that useless degree...
Squidward is prolly jealous of you.
Being able to say the alphabet backwards in about 5 seconds flat consistently
This is good because you can easily provide proof, and it pairs well with drinking.
Ah yes, good ol' fashioned sexism.
I'm a pilot.
Although, as a woman, it often just confuses people and they sometimes respond, "Oh, like a flight attendant?"
I'm naturally left handed, but I'm nearly self-taught ambidextrous. I've been teaching my right hand to do what my left hand normally would do, including writing.
My cup size. 99% of the time the girls are a pain in the ass and I'd drop down if given the chance, but that 1% of the time they come in handy makes it worth it. I only mention it to girls, but I make no effort to lower my voice if boys happen to hear.
Talent at a young age.
When I was a little girl, my school made all of us sit down and create little anti-smoking propaganda posters for some kind of PSA or another. Mine was apparently good enough that it got me an award, a picture with the attorney general, and a small write-up in the local paper.
I have a viral video where I saved a drowning dog at an abandoned waterpark. On my channel is has about 250k views, but on Facebook it has about 35 million views on The Dodo.
Love a good celeb hang.
My dad knows Ed Sheeran's mom, they're friends. My mother is friends with Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid from Harry Potter) and used to go to his parties before she moved. My sister has met Anne-Marie and plays hockey with Ed's wife.
