It seems every office has at least one of these people. They can drive people bat crazy with everything they have done was better, know everyone, and talk a lot of shit just so people think they are smart, cool, and they are everything. In reality it is all BS or as I say a bunch of shit!
They are also the one when you are in a conversation with someone they have to get in the middle and "give their opinion"
or share awesome stuff to put you down.
So here are some ways to deal with that one-upper.
Give the “I DON’T CARE” face
When the person goes on about and extravagant dinner, the best cruise, or other crazy stories make a “I DON’T CARE” face.
This can be effective because the one-upper realizes “you don’t give a care about what they say”.
Don’t try to one-up the one-upper
Getting into the one-upper world is the worst thing to do. Because all you will be doing is going back and forth one-upping each other. Talk about a black hole of stupid stories. So just don’t do it.
Just let it go
The one-uppers can and will frustrate you. However, the amazing cruise and excursions they have done are stories. It’s a story and doesn’t affect your life. Are you happy in life? I hope you are! So let their story go in one ear and out the other. Brush it off and be satisfied with your life! Maybe even tell them how satisfied you are with your life.
This is only a couple ways to deal with the one-upper. Do you have any? Please comment if you do.
