Everybody at least one thing they can brag about. And try as we might, there are always instances where all we want is to slip that piece of information into a conversation. But what is the right technique to work a in a humblebrag? These Redditors will tell you.
u/HoldMeDownSanta asked: What's one humble brag you always like to slide into conversation?
I mean hey, it's a free $30.Giphy
Back in the 30s a distant relative wrote a song that happened to get a dozen different covers during the 40s and 50s... and it was just the right style for Fallout's radio stations. Thanks to Disney's never-ending quest to make copyrights last forever... here I am nearly 100 years later collecting about $30 a month.
It makes my taxes a pain in the butt, though. Schedule E for rental properties and royalties made it so I couldn't do simple filing EVER.
It's a weird thing to have, and so I try to slip it into conversations because it's something fun to talk about.
I be flossin'.
I floss every day. That's right, every single day!
That's is actually quite impressive.
"Did I stutter?" I have a bad stutter, so this helps assert dominance. Works. Every. Time. It's how I actually met my girlfriend, I used that line and she laughed so hard she gave me her number
Bro that's a power move if I ever heard of one GG
Now THAT'S skill.
I've ridden all 47 rides at Disney World in a single day without any sort of VIP tour cheating.
The freelance writer grind...Giphy
That I'm a freelance writer and I'm not allowed to disclose some of the people I've written for... you know, since you asked.
What was it like writing for a well known 90's TV show actor?
Now THAT'S cool.
I have an asteroid named after me for my contributions on a currently flying space mission.
I mean, it isn't a big asteroid... but it's a little proof that I've launched at least one thing into space.
Bold and brash.
My Master's degree in clarinet performance. Just because it was so d*mn difficult and would probably never get me a pay rise either. But I started it and finished it. So proud of that useless degree...
Squidward is prolly jealous of you.
Being able to say the alphabet backwards in about 5 seconds flat consistently
This is good because you can easily provide proof, and it pairs well with drinking.
Ah yes, good ol' fashioned sexism.
I'm a pilot.
Although, as a woman, it often just confuses people and they sometimes respond, "Oh, like a flight attendant?"
I'm naturally left handed, but I'm nearly self-taught ambidextrous. I've been teaching my right hand to do what my left hand normally would do, including writing.
My cup size. 99% of the time the girls are a pain in the ass and I'd drop down if given the chance, but that 1% of the time they come in handy makes it worth it. I only mention it to girls, but I make no effort to lower my voice if boys happen to hear.
Talent at a young age.
When I was a little girl, my school made all of us sit down and create little anti-smoking propaganda posters for some kind of PSA or another. Mine was apparently good enough that it got me an award, a picture with the attorney general, and a small write-up in the local paper.
I have a viral video where I saved a drowning dog at an abandoned waterpark. On my channel is has about 250k views, but on Facebook it has about 35 million views on The Dodo.
