Have you ever rubbed your success in anyone’s face?

Hello readers, welcome to another Poll Tuesday on A Loco Viva Voce.

Last week, I asked you guys what you would do with Six hundred (600) million naira and the votes were tied between buying different properties and putting them on rent and investing the money in a thriving business.

Today’s poll is all about those people that feel the constant need to remind us of their success. The question is: HAVE YOU EVER RUBBED YOUR SUCCESS IN ANYONE’S FACE?

It doesn’t necessarily have to be monetary success. It could be that you got selected after a job interview and your friend didn’t. Did you rub it in their face blatantly or even subtly? Or maybe you came out tops in your class. Did  you make everyone uncomfortable by constantly reminding them of how genius you are?

Those are just a few examples. So search yourself and answer truthfully guys.

Happy voting!

    • Personally Jacqueline, I believe that anyone who sets out to taunt anyone with whatever their definition of success is most likely isn’t really as “successful” as they aim to be perceived.

      So they’re putting up a make-believe lifestyle. Otherwise, there really is no need to announce your arrival to the world regardless if money is involved or not.

      • Good. Sometimes, when a trumpet is overblown, it is done to mask the fact that the blower has a sore throat. I made that up, but I suppose that supports your analogy. It is usually done to add chips on a shoulder that feels inferior. Then again, our achievements can be celebrated in decent ways because they also serves as a source of inspiration and motivation to others.

      • Lol Jacqueline. You always have a way with words and I absolutely love your proverbs.

        And yes, it definitely supports my analogy but then again like you rightly said, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with sharing your success with others as a form of motivation but it should be done in such a way that it doesn’t taunt the other party or seem like a flaunt.
