20 Bullets From the Pomposity Pistol



To say that my kind and me have a high opinion of ourselves is to put it too low. We are superior, of an elevated status and ethereally stunning and wonderful. Our achievements are magnificent, our accomplishments legion and we leave you mere mortals trailing in our wake. Anybody who tells you that narcissists suffer from low self-esteem does not understand narcissism.

We know you look on, slack-jawed and wide-eyed, a mixture of awe and envy washing over you. How good it must be to be like us, you wonder. Well not only are we spectacular and scintillating we are generous too, so generous that I can share with you twenty of our excessively vain and self-centred comments.

You may have heard a number of these said to you, about you or just uttered in your general earshot as we gaze nobly towards the horizon. If you have, you know you are dealing with one of our kind and that we wholeheartedly believe these comments irrespective of how pompous, hypocritical ,vain or ridiculous they may sound.All that matters to us is ensuring we gain a reaction to them.

Here are twenty bullets which the narcissist will fire from The Pomposity Pistol which you need to dodge.


  1. I donโ€™t complain, I advise.
  2. I do, I am not done to.
  3. Donโ€™t be sorry. Be accurate.
  4. I turn heads. I turn sexual preferences.
  5. I own you.
  6. I have every right to do this.
  7. I never lie.
  8. I achieved all this without any help whatsoever.
  9. I made you what you are today.
  10. I am very much in touch with my feelings.
  11. I hate liars.
  12. It is all down to me.
  13. I am a god.
  14. If it wasnโ€™t for me, nothing would get done round here.
  15. I think of everyone but myself. I am too giving at times.
  16. It can be hard being this well-loved.
  17. I cannot help being so popular.
  18. They are my people. They get understand me,
  19. Everyone wants to either be me or be with me.
  20. I am the puppet master and the piper. Deal with it.

    Dear Mr Tudor,
    My mum’s favourite lines …….

    ‘I never lie’ ๐Ÿคฅ
    ‘I hate liars’

    Also …..’men have always been attracted to me’ and
    ‘I never had sex’ ๐Ÿค”
    Another classic among narcs is -:

    ‘I never said that’ …..when they’ve literally, just said it …๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

    Excellent pointers haha
    Luv Bubbles xx ๐Ÿ˜˜

      Oh… The “I never said that” absolutely makes my blood boil. Then if you’re “lucky” enough to have proof, such as a text message, that they did indeed say that, prepare for World War 3 and to possibly have your phone thrown against the wall.

      1. Bubbles says:

        Dear Alison,
        Completely correct ! Although I either get the silent fury or the silent treatment haha
        Chuck in ‘I don’t remember’ as well, it ranks as high as ‘ I never said that’
        ‘Dare you doubt me?’ ‘Who do you think you’re talking to?’ ‘I’m the genius of the family’
        Luv Bubbles xx ๐Ÿ˜˜

    The narcissists of “my life” flashed at each bullet.

    My mother was the first.

    “My N” – 14 bullets fit. Yes, he was God too. I always told him: “Just your ass, I guess”.

    But also … something fits me here ๐Ÿ™‚ Not good Joa.

    As I scan each bullet from 1-20 down down down I go, I smile then chuckle to myself realizing I have said at least 18 out of the 20 comments from that list in some form or another…

    Gee.. now I wonder what that says about me?
    I guess time will tell everything I need to know about me.
    Life is about to get real interesting…I think…..

    Thanks HG….love your stuff…

    Here are a few quotes from my ex:

    I was too much of a man for my exes.

    I never lie.

    I donโ€™t have anything to hide therefore I sleep very well at night.

    Iโ€™ve never allowed anyone else to do the things I allow you to do to me and get away with it.

    Just look at all that I put up with you. My friends/colleagues would be shocked if they knew how you speak to me.

    You have done too little too late to make it right.

    Iโ€™ve known only one other more intelligent than me.

    You failed us.

    1. Bubbles says:

      Dearest Wendy,
      Thank you for sharing his quotes
      Says it all really, doesnโ€™t it ?
      Actually, Iโ€™m in stitches at his grandiosity, he certainly has tickets on himself ๐ŸŽŸ
      Luv Bubbles xx ๐Ÿ˜˜

      1. Wendy says:

        Bubbles, lol!

        Yes it says so much! ๐Ÿ˜‚
        In actuality, he is so very insecure and I am glad I told him exactly that the last time I met with him! Iโ€™m sure it rolled right off of him but at least it was said. Iโ€™m thankful as time passes I see so much clearer and have only minimal moments of โ€œmissingโ€ that fake man he portrayed himself to be.
        Hugs to to you! ๐Ÿค— Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and lovely holiday season!


        1. Bubbles says:

          Dearest Wendy,
          Like you, I had the chance to tell the our friend the weasel ‘exactly’. He just gave me the silent treatment. Water off a duck’s back! They just can’t ‘man up’ or ‘own up’. He’s still acting the raw prawn ๐Ÿค
          Hugs to you too Wendy and a hope you have very Merry Christmas ๐ŸŽ„
          Luv Bubbles xx ๐Ÿคถ๐Ÿป

      Mine has said a few of these too, particularly the friends/colleagues one. Ugh.
