Welcome, the kvetchbrag.
What is a kvetchbrag you may ask?
"Oh my GOD, my arms are so sore from my workout!" Substitute, pecs, lats, abs...
"This Grammy is SOoooooo heavy!"
"I'm exhausted, I had to wake up at 4am for an early call on set."
"We've been invited to so many galas, I've run out of formal dresses!"
The kvetchbrag, kvetch-brag, kvetch brag (I'm coining them all), is different than the humble brag, because you're not disguising your brag in humility, but in a complaint. It's quite brilliant and effective!
Enjoy the kvetch.
- please use this expression and get back to me with good ones, I am hoping to start a movement. It's very tiring and hard work, but someone has to do it.
