There is a terrible personality type, which I sometimes exhibit, known as The Topper. Anything bad thing you say that happened to you, The Topper can come up with one worst that happened to him.
It is annoying. The other day our seminarian was home for (ironically) spring break (more like lingering winter break) and we went for a walk. He was telling me about life and I found myself exhibiting this terrible trait.
Unfortunately, I couldn't completely give it up as he made the hapless mistake of talking about his rough day on the very same day I had my colonoscopy.
