I guess all I can call it is reverse bragging. Unlike vague-booking where the status is asking for questions “oh I am so upset right now” (no explanation) there is one guy in particular who makes it perfectly clear what he’s up to, but then acts like he’s pissed off about it.
The most recent one was (changing specifics but you’ll get the drift) “Tonight , I will be having dinner with the national soccer team. Replace the word ‘soccer’ with ‘football’ or ‘women’s beach volley ball’ and we got ourselves a night…”
ALL of this person’s statuses are like this.
Totally rubs me up the wrong way. Good for him, sure. But don’t be a dick about it.
Rant over. (no idea why I posted this, just felt like the right thing to do)

Can someone move this to the lounge (or other Not Wedding Related, more appropriate place) please?

Like fake humility brag? Like he’s pretending to complain about something he really thinks you think is awesome?
Annoying yes. I find them more pathetic than the outright brag, to be honest. At least a braggart who owns being a braggart isn’t being in denial about their obnoxiousness. They can’t think we don’t really think that them bragging about going to “Yet another 5-star restaurant with my wonderful hubby in our new car!!!” is going to come across as anything other than ridiculous, right? Bu the fake humility braggart seems to believe they’re pulling the wool over people’s eyes by “complaining” about what they’re bragging about.
I find such posts very revelatory about some people’s character though. Like, if you didn’t know the person well, but you get updates like that on FB all the time from them… really helps you to know that you’ll be busy if they ever suggest going for a coffee or something.

@joya_aspera: Yes, exactly like that and totally pathetic. TBH, he’s always been like that even in real life. Whilst I have met everyone on my FB not all of them are friends in real life. I went to college with him. And he was annoying then. I agree it would be better if he would just brag. *bangs head against wall*
