the Humble Brag

Humble Brag: n. – A form of self promotion where the promoter thinks they are, almost subliminally, bragging about themselves in the context of a humble statement or complaint. (via Urban Dictionary)

Unfortunately this has become quite the trend on most forms of social media, facebook is at the top of that list. So let’s break it down – what are examples of the humble brag …

  • you have to pack for your island vacation
  • you are forced to wait in line for your car service to pick you up
  • you are shocked at how much it costs to fill up your massive car with gas prices as high as they are
It goes on and on. And unfortunately, I am not “un-guilty” of this. It also becomes confusing to decipher the humble brag from sarcasm.
So check yourself (yes – before you wreck yourself) and I beg  you – know when to say when …
Only YOU can stop humble bragging.
