I won’t say specifically who, but we have a few distant family members who we now have to interact with on a regular basis due to wedding planning, get together, etc. These people somehow manage to make everything about them and LOVE to brag about this and that….don’t ask why we are bothering to even invite them, but we have to! Anyway, I usually take the route of just acting like whatever and not giving any attention to them. But that doesn’t seem to change their ridiculous need to be showy.
Just an example: they will ask me about something and based on my response they will compare me to their son/daughter–as in “oh wonderful, well my daughter did this….bla bla bla!” I generally don’t like to respond to their questions but they slip them in somehow and do it with a smile so how can I not respond?
Any tips on how to handle such people?
