I Can Beat That!

You know those people who only talk about themselves? They just go on and on and on about their lives and anything you say they try to one up you. You know, Self Obsessed?

Example:

Me-Once, at a reptile museum, I held a baby alligator (true!)

Self Obsessed Suzy- Oh, that's nothing. I wrestled a 9 foot Croc in the Nile!

Me-Wow...ummm...that's amazing.

Self Obsessed Suzy-Yea and then I surfed on a great white shark.

And so on.


Are we in a contest here? I think people like that are A. Usually lying, and B. Really insecure.

I mean why get into a pissing match about every little thing? To build them self up, actually to themselves. Relax, if I want to be your friend it wont matter if you climbed Everest or you can speak 5 languages. Just be yourself and stop trying to impress everyone.

  5. Oh,oh,oh when I read the first sentence of your post,my best friend popped up in my mind.O.K.,she's not talking about surfing white sharks :))),but she's definitely one of those people who really like to talk about themselves.I did this and I did that :)!Oh,and it makes me angry,that when I have something imporant to say,than she'll always make sure that after that she'll be the one to finish the conversation by pointing out something she did.He,he,he :)...that makes me crazy,and with years it's getting worse :0!But,all in all she's a nice person.

  6. LOL... yes, these people are insecure and usually lead VERY boring lives or have no lives at all- I've known my fair share in life.

    And they are mentally draining....
