Social media is a haven for boasters like these.

It's basically what it was designed for.

How much do you earn and what exotic places do you visit?

I only ask because I'm trying to figure out why you're so bitter

And then you have people that have a family income of 100k pa and are acting like they're living on the breadline because their nice Dublin home is so expensive, the nice crèche for the kids is so expensive and the car loan is so expensive.

Thankfully, I don’t think I’ve ever come across a rabid name-dropper in real life. I mean the odd time, someone might say that they briefly met somebody famous but I’ve never met the kind of person who tries to catch the reflection of other people’s glory.

My hubs works with a guy who’d love to be famous. He’s trying hard to become an IG influencer. Let’s say his name is Simon Kelly. His IG handle is officialsimonkelly. He loves Lillies Bordello. Well, did like it. It’s closed now. He’d make a big deal out if the bar staff there knowing his order. He repeatedly regales people with tales of his encounters with celebs. The one I remember was one called Hugo Weaving. I had to look him up.

If you're not earning that by the time you hit 50 you should consider yourself a failure.
There's an opinion you definitely keep online if you don't want to come across as one of those people.

I do have a neighbor who's badly guilty of what the OP detailed... every time you meet him it's where he was this week with work.

Don't care mate. Don't care.

What is sadder still is when people namedrop local people who are supposed to be of prominence.

For example, there used to be a woman at work, who would always namedrop with reverence if she met some local business person.

The best way to get into name dropping if that's your only way to feel like you're important is to go out and spend all your money on coke,booze, hooker's, horse's, property and go absolutely nuts....

Go to rehab and then find out which recovery groups the star's and celebs hang out in....

The only thing is if you break their anonymity you'll be the greatest di CK on the planet....

Kill two bird's with the one binge lol

Name dropping what a bunch of vvankers

I live in Carlow and I've seen Ritchie Kavanagh around the town a few times.
