Worst: Complainabrags and Explainabrags
I know the title of this post doesn't make much sense, but I don't know what other name to call these people. A complainabrag is my ripoff of the explainabrag (from the show Community). Basically, a complainabrag is when someone complains about something only so he/she can later brag about it.
The reason I'm in this mood is because a girl in one of my classes complained about the final on Facebook. She said she didn't even know why she took the class - making people assume it was giving her difficulties. So I asked her if she thought it would be hard, but she replied saying it was "the least of [her] worries." Why complain about the least of your worries? That's just stupid. That's like complaining about a pimple on your face when you need to get both of your legs amputated.
Then, after we took the final, she wrote on my wall and asked what I thought of the test. I was surprised that she wrote on my wall because I never talk to her - the only reason I commented on her status the day before was because I realized we were in the same class. I don't even say hi when I pass her on campus. Yet, there she was writing on my wall. I told her I didn't think the test was bad. She responded by saying she "completely agreed" and thought it was "quite easy." Again, she wanted me to know how smart she is.
When I first met this girl, she used an explainabrag to tell me she was the valedictorian of her high school. I hate people who are always trying to tell everyone how smart they are. It's annoying and no one really cares. Other people are smart, too.
