v. Back Door Bragging: The act of expressing a false statement in order to set up the conversation to prove how (seemingly) fantastic the subject finds themselves.
effect: typically leads to eye rolls and general annoyance with subject.
Sarah: Lets go check out the new mall!
Lisa: Oh I hate clothes shopping anymore. Since I've been working out I can never find anything that fits because my waist is too tiny and my tits are too big. Life is so unfair!
Sarah: You're such a back door braggart, Lisa. Go fuck yourself.
Backdoor bragging is when you sneak something wonderful about yourself in everyday conversation.
30 Rock Episode Dialogue:
Kenneth: The personal essay is way harder than I thought, cause it's not in my nature to brag on myself.
Jenna: Not even a back door brag?
Kenneth: What's a back door brag?
Jenna: Backdoor bragging is sneaking something wonderful about yourself in everyday conversation. Like when I tell people it's hard for me to watch American Idol cause I have perfect pitch. You try it.
Kenneth: Oh, it's hard for me to watch American Idol because there's a water bug on my channel changer.
This comes back later in a talk with Liz:
Jenna: People always underestimate my instincts because of my good looks.
Liz: This is no time for back door bragging!

Humblebrag example: "Just stepped in gum. Who spits gum on the red carpet?"
Appropriate response(s): "Fuck off bitch"
Humblebrag example: "I can't believe I sounded like such a idiot on TV last night"
Appropriate response(s): "Believe it, idiot"

A prep has a ready smile (not because we're brainless, but because we're kind and know how good a smile can make someone feel) and is always willing to discuss inte...
