"One-Uppers" are the most annoying ppl period
 
you know who i mean, if you tell a story they always have a slightly better story involving themself or someone they know.

My girlfriends friends boyfriend (puh) is the THE most annoying m-f ever. I told him that i caught a cod that weighed about 20 pounds and that was the biggest id ever caught. he then when on to tell this INSANE story about him, a knife, a seabass , and a fight to the death. im not gonna go into detail but it was THE most crazy made up shit id EVER heard, and it included a monster eal also.

another one was when i told about this friend of mine that got this really cool soundsystem in his apartment. He didnt even respond to it before he told me that a friend of his had , and im not making this up , " the second best sound system in Europe "

the last one im gonna tell ( but there are many many others ) is when i told him that i won the squadron's 3 km contest ( running ) in the navy with the time 9:50 and he told me he had run it on , and again i shit you not.....9:45 !!!!


just felt the need to vent as he told me one yesterday also and hes driving me insane. oh and hes 34 yo btw something that doesnt exactly help

Ah the classic story-topper... I once had one as my roommate, I quickly realized how damn annoying he actually was when you couldn't just leave, but I kept him around for a while 'cause he was a damn good cook :)

But it's kinda sad that some people need to act like this to get attention or whatever, it's a clear sign of some emotional dysfunction :/

Thats funny. I just got off a job (construction site) where are crew had one of those. I keep thinking about how messed up this guys head must be. Everything somebody said he would have a ridiculously better story. I told him I went to a local bar and ordered a drink and when my eyes adjusted to the darkness of the bar I saw the bartendress was a knockout, just gorgeous and nice too. That was all I said and he went on that he personally knows her and that one night she followed him into the bathroom and gave him a BJ! This guy is so f#cked up that I almost feel sorry for him but its hard to feel sorry for a one-upper

I had a friend like that, we all called him " the great one" most of the time. it was a running joke He was an only child and grew up watching way to much tv. We started to feel bad for the guy when he hit about 25.
He is 40 now and i havent seen him in about 6-7 years but he was still the same last time i saw him, he spent 20 min. telling me how much money he made and was going to make that year..
same old William..

This is usually where I look at them for just a moment, and say "Cool story." Then pointedly start a new conversation.

To be fair, I only got to say "cool story" once, and I said it half-joking, but I know the people around me knew what I meant.

L&M has/had a friend like this. Long story short, he knew the guy for 25 years and finally got sick of all his bullshit, and now they don't talk any more.

I don't mind a little one upping when it's actually true, but people that straight up lie to top you are the worst.

Just totally blank them when they do that. When they ask whats up tell them you don't listen to bullshit.

@ swp

Add a "bro" at the end for extra annoyance. ;)
