The One Upper
Is the person…
Who’s been there, done it, and had more fun at (even if they never did it, been there, or had fun)
Here are some examples:
Interrupts a conversation to interject their knowledge (or lack of) to be relevant.
Has done something better than you i.e After you’ve described something cooked and they say “Well taste better when you add…because that’s how I make it.” So what who cares. Mine tasted just fine.
Had more fun than you. You might have gone to the same place on vacation. You might have even went to the same tourist spot, but they will have that one thing that was better than yours and had more fun.
Shouts out the answer or finishes your sentences although they had no idea what the next words coming out of your mouth are? It’s not like your besties and have been friends for a long time (so they actually know what you were going to say), it’s just that they want to be a part of the conversation that they can’t help themselves. But that doesn’t make it any less annoying.
Finds ways to steer the conversation back to them so they one up you.
