Every now and then you might meet someone who brags so much and so often that it nauseates you. But those people aren't as common as the people who feel the need to brag about the sort of things that turn out to reveal more about their inner character than they might believe.

"What's something people boast about, but you're totally unimpressed by?" –– This was today's burning question from Redditor aholo and it's fair to say they struck a nerve.


"Uh... congratulations?"

"I'm more tired than you!"

Uh... congratulations?

"I work more than you! You're a lazy freeloader by comparison!"

So... you're proud of being a wage slave?

"I've experienced more suffering than you!"

Wow, your life sucks. Also, is there some kind of self-righteousness contest no one told me about?

"It's a person."

Being famous, knowing famous people or being related to a famous person.

It's a person.

"When somebody..."

When somebody starts telling you how honest and trustworthy they are, you can bet they're not.

"I don't get it."

Expensive clothing. No one is against quality clothing, but don't make such a huge deal out of it. A Gucci cap is still just a cap, I don't get it.

"I went to a convention..."

I went to a convention where an attendee managed to get to the mic in every panel. She led every question with "I'm an army veteran..." then she would pause for the panelist to thank her for her service and for the audience to politely applaud before she asked her question. (Obviously the convention and her question were completely unrelated to her former job in the armed services.)

"I never get enough sleep..."

Said this another post yesterday, how little sleep they need to function on a daily basis.

I love sleeping, I never get enough sleep because of work/children/life and just because you've had three hours sleep, went to the gym and feel 'surprisingly fresh' in the office you aren't special Dave.

"Weird how the people who boast..."

IQ. Weird how the people who boast about having high IQs seem like dumber people.

"...doesn't make you some super transcended..."

Being an "old soul" or being "out of touch with their generation". Listening to top 40 classic rock and thinking that "getting milkshakes at a diner" is the ideal date doesn't make you some super transcended and unique individual, and it certainly doesn't make you inherently better than anyone.

"Note..."

How smart they are.

Note, they are never as smart as they think they are.

"But knowing the stress and pressure..."

I'm a teacher; some of the parents at school like to boast about their children's achievements (straight As, international competitions, etc.). But knowing the stress and pressure students experience for those achievements appalls me.

Everyone has their travel bucket list.

The list of places they absolutely must visit before they die.

There are those, however, who also have a rather different list of destinations.

The places that have no intention to visit.

Be it for safety concerns, language barriers, or simply that there's nothing at these places that calls to them, there are places some wouldn’t dream of spending the time and money to visit.

Redditor TrooperJohn was curious to hear which places were at the very bottom of the list of travel destinations for his fellow Redditors, leading them to ask:

"What is a popular tourist destination you have no interest in visiting?"

And things that go "bump" in the night... sometimes they do more than bump.

Redditor ag9910 wanted to hear about the times home felt like an unsafe place to be. They asked:

"What is the scariest, strangest, most unexplainable thing that has happened to you while home alone?"
