Okay, it's a made up word but let me give you an example: a pompous braggart has a case braggardocia...........
Well, not hating is the new form of accusing others of being jealous. And if you are worthy of that much hate, you sure are bragging. And you must have the whole world and a Jug! All I would want to know is "Jealous of what". Lots of folk want to think they're better than someone else or to think they have more. Most of these people are so lacking in personality or real humility they don't seem to have much else to hold on to. Get over yourselves and look at how quiet the real winners are............
Only thing, those who really have muscle don't flex it in public unless they are body builders. Have you ever noticed that person who will ruin the King's English themselves but will point out your grammatical mistakes? Whew! They are so tiresome because you just don't want to let them know how stupid they are. And a roof would have to fall in before they can identify themselves as the offenders. My perfect example is a person running around saying "I am so ferious". Are you serious?
Have you ever seen the person with fine diamonds, pearls, gold and regalia but still don't look so hot? They don't know that the hair and the shoes will make the whole outfit....or break it. Even with the fine regalia and jewelry they are still not that well groomed as a more modest person who rely more on cleanliness and nice hair and again....shoes!
Anyone that has to put the focus on themselves are many times deeply delusional. Nothing's wrong with taking pride in God-given good looks but gee, aren't you used to yourself and are you so shallow that you think this is all that matters? But woe is the person who constantly finds physical faults in others. No one qualifies for laughing or criticizing others appearances, but have you noticed that it's usually the ones that cannot afford to talk about anyone that does the most? I have.
And all I will say is that all opinions are relative. Everyone thinks that their relatives, children and friends are special in some ways. But gosh darn I have had to tell far too many women how beautiful their daughters are or of course, how handsome those sons are. Not to mention smart. Everyone I meet tells me that their children are WAY above averages and that their children are generally better than the others. Notice, these people are stingy with compliments to you......
Great list. Sounds familiar!
I saw the first four letters and knew what you meant! Yes, these poor souls are full of themselves. High 5.
Ha ha - Don't hate but I know some folks with braggardocia.
Funny article xD But very well written.
So funny, when I saw the title I said, yep, I bet I know what that is, LOL! Our dearly loved English language is constantly evolving as you just proved. Great list hon and yep I know one or two like this.
I was at a loss when I saw the condition of Braggardocia since I was not familiar with it. Your list explains it well and I like your inguinity.
LOL ... I think I know a person or two like this!
