    For example...

    Somebody is acting all normal for months/years, as soon as they have something you don't they act all better than you and dickish.

    I don't understand it really, most things don't last forever and the people who do this normally end up more embarrassed than once they lose that something...

    It's not really insulting or rude, just really dumb and idiotic. I always have to hold my tongue when somebody comes out with one of these situations, I just want to start an argument but then I'd be just as pathetic as the other person.

    A better example...

    Someone who hasn't got **** all education, qualifications etc. gets a job and then suddenly turns to the other person who has good grades etc. but no job.

    "You haven't even got a job or anything, what are you doing with life?"

    Hold on a ****ing second!! I've spent 3 years studying while you've been doing **** all and now you have the cheek to say that!

    Rant over....Why do people feel the need to act like this???

    Is it jealousy? Self-reassurance? Hate? I don't know...

    Oh, lol...

    Does this apply to EVERY subject that situations like these appear, not just education/jobs.

    I can't stand people trying to put down others no matter how little the subject is.

    It's jealousy. I get it all the time just because I keep it real. Just keep it real and do your thing.

    you should let people who do this have their moment in the sun, 5 minutes of glory because if you dont youre reducing them to nothing in the grand scheme of things, they just want to be noticed and also want to go places like you

    Because I'd think it terribly dishonest of myself to try and pretend I was the equal of others by lowering myself to their level. Of course.

    We do it because it's fun. Sorry to bring the "they are insecure" bandwagon to such a screeching halt.

    I don't only do it to people who are better than me, but yes.

    Does the fact that I'm not really bothered gain me access to the below bandwagon?
