ohana :  God, this one might be the worst. I would delete her off of social media, that’s how little I deal with those types of people.

junebride026 :  Whoops…I have said that before, but only when I found out I was wearing the wrong bra size for years and had to go out and buy new ones. Though I feel like I should jump to the defense of women whose boobs are so big (naturally) that it gives them back problems, I knew a woman with that issue and she had to have a reduction (and is still bigger than me).

As for humble brags that piss me off… basically when my Fiance complains about traffic. I have 3x his commute and make 30% less than he does. :/

happyjuju :  OMG this. I can’t stand it when people check into airports on Facebook and say “Ugh, going to Dubai for work again!” Must be rough. 😂

I used to have big boobs and I truly was very unhappy and annoyed with them. I don’t think that’s a humblebrag unless it’s someone who simultaneously shows them off. 

 

I think we need to differentite between actual humblebrags and legitimate complains that still might make someone envious. For example, if someone is complaining they’re having a hard time losing baby weight and are feeling really down about their body, that isn’t a humblebrag. Someone who is struggling with infertility might still feel like “how dare they complain about that! they have a BABY!” But to the person, the struggle is definitely real. Someone complaining about being tired from their job is legitimate, even if there are others out there who would be thankful for a similar job.

FB posts from stay at home moms like “Sooo proud of my hard working hubby who worked 70 hours this week and then came home and built the baby’s crib and made me dinner!!!” or something to that extent. Or pictures of manicures and captions like “Thanks hubby!” 

We get it. You get to stay home and your husband spoils you.

brucebogtrotter :  I agree. I am built like a stick with small boobs and it’s extremely difficult finding any strapless dresses that stay up on me. I prefer straps for this reason. My wedding dress was strapless and even though I had it taken in it would still slide down. If someone wants to think that’s a humble brag because I am saying I’m skinny well then whatever. It’s a legitimate complaint to me and something I get self conscious over.

I wouldn’t call this humble bragging but more False Altruistic Greatful Bragging:

Posts a video of them cheering up a stranger who works at fast food joint saying that’s not your forever job and then uses this to post how far they came from working at a McDonalds as a teen. “Now I have a new car, a House, a great paying job etc” 

Seems similar to humble bragging where you mask your bragging but this is with some “good deed” that shouldn’t have needed to share if it were indeed a good deed.. 

 

Also to comment on the big vs small boobs I think both have their pros and cons – it’s just going to be a grass is greener situation

WesterosBarbie :  Oh wow. I’d kill for that level of “crazy housing market.” If it helps at all to give you some perspective, I could not even buy a shack or a teensy bachelor/1-bedroom apartment with 400k here. Mayyyybe you could buy a small house for that much in Toronto (and suburbs at that)…30 years ago. :/

clcbride :  She has value in other ways, basically. I really would love to delete her but then I know I’d have to ask her a question while organizing an event or we’d end up at the same event and it’d be very awkward. The equestrian community in my state is very small and close-knit. 😩 I just look to see the “when” at the front of her posts and just move on.

anatheanalyst :  Whenever people ask “questions” (and I put questions in quotes because they aren’t REALLY looking for advice) like that I love to just give it back to them.

“Is my ring TOO BIG?!” “Acutally yeah, it is pretty ostentatious. You should look into replacing the stone.”

“Does this (obviously super flattering) dress make me look fat?” “Eh, it doesn’t really flatter you.”

“Should I return this wayy too expensive gift my perfect, adoring husband got me?” “Probably.” 

“I got this AMAZING dream job offer that pays me $200k, but it’ll make my commute 15 minutes longer! What should I do?!” “Ew, definitely turn it down.”
