One Uppers

What are your thoughts on those one uppers?  Let me explain. Say you just bought a new pair of shoes and someone notices and compliments you, them someone else says, “I bought a pair of those when they first came out”.  How do you respond to that?  Or, how about when your just about to tell how you’re going on vacation with the family to Disneyland for the first time and then someone says, “Really?!  The first time?  We go at least twice a year”.  And then they proceed to tell you all about it, leaving you speechless and making the conversation all about them.  They always have to one up you.  That’s why I call them, “One uppers”.  They’re never really happy for you, they have to be better than you and they want all the attention for themselves.  Here are some more examples: 

I won tickets on the radio for the first time.  

Oh yeah, well, I know one of the dj’s on the most popular radio station and they always hook me up with tickets.  

My daughter is interested in acting and modeling.

Oh yeah, well, my daughter has an audition for a commercial.

I just bought the cutest little kitten.

Oh yeah, well our cat cost us $500 and her collar is made with real gems.

We just watched a really good movie.

Oh yeah, well, I thought that movie was terrible.  If you want to watch a real good movie then you should watch……  Blah, blah, blah.

You get it.  Right?!  Why?  Ugh, those one uppers. 

How about you, any one upper stories you want to share.

Sound off….



  1. Just Plain Ol' Vic

    I promptly kung fu kick them in the face, then stand over their unconscious body and state, “one up that bitch!!”

    Well….probably not, but that is what I am thinking…
