    Default Fighting To Be More Unfortunate

    I have noticed a funny trend lately. People used to mainly talk themselves up and compare their material things to be the better person......NOW it seems like people argue over who is more unfortunate. Who had the hardest upbringing or who has the saddest story etc.

    Has anyone else noticed this?

    ETA. TO CLARIFY so no more panties get in a twist................I am talking about in real life in general and not specifically on BH. I am not taking a passive aggressive dig at any members or threads.

    Yes! The battle of who has it worse off is a popular one.

    Yep. Wrote a thread about some of my friend's expectations of me not long ago because I'm so 'lucky' compared to them. As they are so hard done by.

    Possibly a sign of the times - economically things aren't what they were a little while back, people probably are less fortunate in comparison to what they were.

    Or maybe, being less fortunate = the new black

    Lol. I don't even think it's about finances necessarily. Everybody is still super rich with our CEO husbands of course but I have noticed the arguments over who works the hardest, who sleeps the least, who has the most difficult kids etc.
