What's the deal with people who are always trying to one-up your account of interesting/unique experiences? There's a guy I run into when I'm out (but try to avoid), and I think it's fair to say that nobody's really ever happy to see him because he's such a rapid story-topper. No matter how great you say that Rush concert was, this guy went to an even more amazing show in a cooler venue and got backstage. That pizza joint you think has the best slices? Pure crap compared to this guy's place that of course "not that many people know about" on the other side of town... which brings him to this other time when he was there late-night with his ex-girlfriend blah blah blah.. is this not the most ingratiating personal trait or what?
