I always find it to be pretty uncomfortable when people brag about things that don’t make them look cool at all…

Or, as what the kids say these days, when folks “flex” and it isn’t really a “flex” at all.

Are you ready to hear what AskReddit users had to say about this?

Let’s take a look!

Good thing it’s in the past.

“I was absolutely a functioning al**holic.

Downing a handle/wk, plus wine and beer. No wonder I put on 60lbs (dropped it all since, thankfully). Used to brag about drinking everyone under the table, and then it kinda dawned on me that I might actually have an addiction problem.

So glad that it didn’t take a more severe “wake-up call” like hospitalization for overconsumption or something like that.”



As a nurse that has worked in orthopedic surgery, a lot of our surgical procedures are repairing injuries from CrossFit.”


““Do you know who my father is?”

Yes, well done, your father did well for himself. What have you done?”

The grind.

“Working 60+hrs a week and “grind mentality”

Don’t get me wrong, I like OT. Especially because all of my OT is double time and I like making the big bucks from time to time but…

Trying to flex that you work 60+hrs per week and saying that anything less than 60hrs is “part time” is just plain stupid.

You are working your life away, spending more time away from your family. And it shows just how underpaid you really are.”

Not into it.

“Owning a Range Rover.

I have one, it’s nearly 10 years old, done 77k miles and drives like s**t.”


“How big their mortgage is.

Dude, you’re just bragging about how crippling your debt is.”

Here we go…

“People who describe themselves as “an empath” in the first few minutes of meeting them.

Most just have a lot of unresolved trauma and talk incessantly about themselves.”

Sounds great!

“Couples that are miserable bragging how many years they have been together.

They always use their anniversary to talk about how much they can’t stand each other, too. “We’ve had our ups and downs and we often don’t get along.

But between all the yelling and fighting and breakups we’ve made it work! Love you, babe! Thanks for doing life with me! Happy Anniversary!”

It’s weird AF.”

Go away.

“Driving around in a super-loud vehicle such as a low-riding Scion with glasspacks.

If you own one of these, you look like an a**hole and everyone h**es you.”


“”I haven’t read a book since high school.”

This is not a flex. Not being interested in reading, having issues with it or having had sh**ty teachers ruining it for you is one thing, but saying it like you’re proud of it tells me a lot about the type of person you are.

None of it is good.”


“Not wearing your seat belt, not using sunscreen, bragging about how many people you’ve slept with, bragging about how little sleep you’ve got this night.”

Now it’s your turn.
