Do you hate when people brag about themselves?

I don't like to talk to a person who seems to brag about themselves. They will block out everything that you're saying just to try and say something about themselves. This is even if it has nothing to do with the subject of the conversation. What do you think?

i hate these people who brags, and just want to make you look bad, or not as good as them. are they make sure they let you know what they got or how much money they got and make. if you don't make as much they try to make you feel like crap a bout yourself. i tell people like this money don't make the person, it's the person who does.

I happen to know some people who are like this, and I have one friend who always brags without actually meaning to. Many people don't like him, but since I've known him for so long, it doesn't bother me as much. Just a few weeks ago he sent messages to everybody on his friendster list, and asked them for their numbers because he lost his SIM card. But he said "I might have lost my SIM card while horseback-riding in Baguio." Now the bit about horseback riding in Bagiou was totally unnecessary---it only makes people think he's bragging about going there, but he doesn't actually mean it like that. So, when I come across people who seem to be bragging, I just think that maybe their like my friend, who sounds like a show-off but isn't really like that at all.

Yeah! I don't like people who brag a lot.. It's pure selfishness on his part.. He will just interrupt a nice conversation by bragging about himself, isn't that disrespect and selfishness?.. One must be humble enough to bow down. Isn't it feel much better if other people brag about you and your achievements because they seen you've done your best?

People who brag about themselves are very annoying. Their called "stage hogs." They will always find a way to turn the conversation back to them.
