A few years ago I ran into a middle school classmates mother outside of a restaurant. After talking for a minute, she started to brag about what her daughter was up to. I didn’t even ask about her!
Note that her daughter is like this too, especially on social media.
(No wonder I didn’t ask about her…)
But I HATE people who brag, whether it’s about their kids, their job (I know someone who does this), or other accomplishments on a daily and ad nauseum basis. It’s fine to post a status about going on a trip or getting a new job, I do that, but when it’s excessive I get bothered.
With social media, people get another avenue to brag. Instagram is a prime example. You can post photos and write two paragraph captions. Who’s going to read all that, if at all? We only care about the pictures right?
But, there’s a fine line between bragging and just telling people what you’re eating for lunch or the concert you’re at. But when is that line crossed?
