Personality Flaws

have you ever known somebody that only thinks about themselves? i have a friend on facebook, a girl, who always talks about herself. we have some mutual friends, and if somebody says anything and she answers it's always about herself. always. i started noticing this one day and i got to thinking, "do i do this?" i know sometimes i do, but i hope it's not always. now, of course people are going to make personal comments, but this girl kinda does it to the extreme, i think. no, i'm not gonna tell you who she is or what was said. i'm just saying, it got me thinking. of course, on a blog it is all about me, but i hope when i leave comments on other people's blogs i'm not self absorbed. i do think that we all have the potential to be ridiculously self centered, but at the same time we have the potential to be completely selfless. i hope i'm leaning more towards selfless.

yeah whatever. So last night I went to the store and there was this girl just looking at me and I was like, "what?" and then she went away. Isn't that totally strange. I mean why was she looking at me?

So, last night I went to the store and I saw this woman. I thought that she looked familiar so I was looking at her trying to remember her name. She turned and looked at me and gave me a dirty look as if saying "What?". I just went away because the person who I thought she was wouldn't be that rude.

I think after someone shares a story or incident I may talk about myself but it is about a similar experience, I guess to show empathy. I may tell a story about myself that I think is funny. But I think most of my stories are about other people that I know.

ha ha ha. I always wanted to hijack somebody else's blog. Alright now I'll comment on Ruth's post. I know what you mean. One uppers are like that where it doesn't matter what you say they always knew something bigger or had something worse.
play around with her. give her something she can't talk about herself on. Or give a loaded one just to mess with her. at least then it wouldn't be annoying so much but fun for you.
