Expressing sadness or misfortune in a very vague way so as to bait other people in to asking "what's wrong?" so they can receive pity. Most commonly happens with Facebook status updates such as:
Why do they feel so lumpy?
I wish Oprah were here...she would understand...
I just don't see the point anymore...
It's ok, I'm fine being by myself.
Well, I did my best at least...
Annoyed listener: Oh shut the hell up already, you're such a pity baiter and I'm not biting.
