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.

Sometimes you only need to experience something once, to know it's a never again situation.

I always say, try everything once.

Well, now that I'm older, a caveat to that is... try it all within reason.

How many things have we all walked away from saying the one time experience will suffice?

In fact, knowing when to say no is one of life's wisest choices.

Redditor Croakied wanted to discuss the times we've all said... "once was enough!" They asked:

"What is one thing that you will NEVER do again?"

There is an age old question that has been getting more traction surrounding sex for partners the last decade or so.

And that is... "is just one enough?"

Were we really meant to only be with one person forever?

There are so many flavors to taste.

What if your partner wants more cookie dough with your strawberry?

Redditor Pineapple-Status wanted to hear everyone's thoughts on opening the bedroom to others. They asked:

"What would you do if your long term SO suddenly wants to have sex with other people?"

Many of us sometimes fantasize about what we would do to our worst enemies, especially in the moments when they're actively making our lives worse.

While most of us would never actually do any of the things that we contemplate instead of screaming at that super annoying person at the office, we do get pretty creative with the ideas.

I grew up poor, and I remember the little things that made me smile when we just happened to have enough that week.

The little things that a truly rich person would not think twice about.

Ah, the luxury of it.

What spells luxury for you?

Redditor ConAir161057 wanted to compare notes about the things in life that feel like items only money can buy. They asked:

"For people who grew up with little money, what always felt like a luxury?"
