The act of showing off whilst pretending it’s a hard life

Swanking is blatantly bragging about what you have done / have bought / have said

Passive swanking is bragging but in a humble brag sort of way. You aren’t fooling anyone
Donna: I don’t know how I’m going to cope with the heat in Miami and the amount of people, why did I book a 5* all inclusive vacation at the busiest, most expensive time of year in an exclusive hotel?

Friends: yes Donna, poor you. Hope you have a fabulous vacay!

Friends: *thinking* what a show off! Some of us can’t have a vacation Donna loves passive swanking
