People are weird. And they brag about weird things.
Like money. We all want to earn more of it. And spend less of it. We want everyone to think we have it. But we also want expensive things so that we can brag to our neighbours about how little we paid for them. Because that makes us look…better? Smarter? It definitely doesn’t make us look richer. But we still do it.
There are loads of things humans brag about that are strange.
Maybe this is specific to Britain’s alcohol-fuelled culture. But people brag to their friends about getting so drunk that they almost died all the time.
Drank so much at the weekend that you had to get your stomach pumped, shat yourself in McDonald’s, or woke up in a pool of your own vomit? I bet you can’t wait to tell your friends how fun you are!
Not studying for a test.
Why is it that when you are in school/ university, it becomes popular to brag about how little studying you’ve done for a test. Like at university, why is it still everyone’s instinct to tell anyone that will listen how they haven’t done any of the reading? They’re paying, like, a LOT of money for a degree. Yet telling people they’re doing essentially, everything in their power to get as little in return for their cash as possible. Weird.
Similar to the drinking one. Only this time with drugs. ‘Oh man, I was so high this weekend’. Why is that a thing again? I’m not saying don’t do drugs. By all means, do whatever you want. Try everything once. But don’t speak as though putting dangerous substances into your body makes you better than others.
Okay, this one may be worth bragging about. PRO tip #1 Get a quote here: http://www.autoinsurancemonkey.com/how-to-get-cheap-full-coverage-auto-insurance/
Actually. Looking at this list. Maybe I should just start associating with a new crowd. These guys seem like wasters.
