Connection

Today, my coworker called me a liar when I said I've been to New York. This is the same psycho who honestly expects me to believe that she and Brad Pitt have a "thing" and that he secretly communicates with her through interviews on TV. FML

One of those people that have to one up everyone. Sorry op thats the pitt.

I absolutely HATE people who have to one-up. I had a friend who would one-up almost everything I said. If I said I went to California, she would reply with how she went to Hawaii twice. If I said I sprained my ankle, she had story about a broken wrist. It was honestly so exhausting.

now, 22, I share stories similar to those of others too, but I'm not trying to one up them, rather share a similar story to keep the conversation going.

"HA! I had a broken bone! I'm so much better than you smh" I could only imagine. Must've been annoying

There's a difference between one-uping and sharing stories

#24, The difference between a story vs one upping someone is that one upping is gloating about yourself and making the conversation about yourself, whereas a story is relating to the original speaker's story with your own story. One up - Person 1: Yeah, I had just visited New York for business, but I stayed a couple extra days to see the attractions. Person 2 : Oh yeah, that's a little cool I guess. I went to Hawaii. Twice! Story - Person 1: Yeah, I had just visited New York for business, but I stayed a couple extra days to see the attractions. Person 2: Wow, I have always wanted to visit New York! Actually, when I visited Hawaii recently, this couple told me about their time living in New York, and it sounds really exciting. See the difference?

Yeah I understand the difference. I feel like it's usually in the tone. But I could tell this particular friend was trying to one-up me. I enjoy when people share stories to add to the conversation but that simply was not the case.

I used to also have a friend like that but they were way worse about it.

Some people have very unique minds. Its crazy .

"Unique" is one way to say it...

Seems like her opinion shouldn't factor. Whether she believes you went to New York or not doesn't matter.

Don't let her drive you mad. Just let her live her fantasy and try to keep your cool. You're not lying and you still have the memories from New York, that's all that matters my friend,

Unless those memories were fabricated by the gray ones so op doesn't remember the experiments on their ship!!

#21 Shhh! Don't give away our secret!

Tell her you have a "thing" with Ryan Gosling and you totally get what she's talking about

And somewhere in the world, Brad Pitt prepares for his next secret transmission while Ryan Gosling continues to try and pass his own to OP.

She needs help.

Agreed. The whole communicating through the TV is a definite red flag for a possible mental illness. I sincerely hope I'm wrong about that and, if I'm not, that she gets the help that she needs.

Shock, horror! You've been to New York! What's so unbelievable about that.

Depending on where OP lives, being to New York could be a big deal, just as much as being to Paris or London is a big deal to a lot of people.

#23: OP lives in Ontario; New York is right across the border. Shouldn't be that unbelievable.

I'm from New York, theres really nothing special about bright billboards, hobos asking for change, tourist standing in the middle of the way and arrogant rich people pushing and shoving you, thinking you're inferior to them.

If she's that crazy her opinion shouldn't really matter OP. Just watch your back and make sure you don't watch Brad Pitt movies where she might see you.

Hey, that's a real thing. Me and Chris Pratt have a real steady relationship going on through Parks and Rec.

She better stay away from my man. He makes a those movies for ME!
