People Who Flex On Social Media And It Does Nothing But Confuse Us

humor | Rick Lax & Friends | 8/24/18

Flexing your assets on social media has become the millennial version of bragging. It’s basically a non-verbal way of saying look what I have without it actually coming out of your mouth. There are a few effective ways to flex with subtly.

If you take a picture in front of a car but your caption doesn’t mention the car, it’s perceived that you want the attention to be on you and not the nice car behind you, even though that’s exactly what you want. Confused? Just keep reading to see what I mean.

Caught In The Act

If you were to look up the definition of a failed flex on social media, this is what would pop up. Saying you have a new Porsche but then holding up the keys to your 2001 Volks-Wagon Jetta.

The truth is in the keys. This girl could’ve got away with this if she even knew that there are different brands of cars out there.

Should’ve Cleared The Area First

Before you try and start some drama on social media, make sure that you’ve covered all your bases. If you’re going to put this sign on top of the water fountain, like, at least take a look around the hallways ONCE.

This is public humiliation at it’s finest and it was very preventable.

Another part of a woman’s body that garners some serious attention is her rear end. It seems that girls are willing to do anything to get a well-shaped bottom. Some spend hours in the gym doing squats and other butt exercises and THAT’S IT.

Some go full desperation mode and resort to, uh, photoshop enhancement for the quick fix. Not obvious at all.

This guy misleads so many people on his Snapchat list that they must be disappointed. I mean, it’s great that you tried to pull off finally making it big, but you didn’t fool anyone by doing this.

It wouldn’t be surprised if he did this all the time, living his life one lie at a time. It’s going to be a bumpy ride to reality, buddy.

No Gown Is Getting In The Way

When you buy a Gucci belt, the thought process after does not involve hiding it. If you think that a graduation gown is going to stop that mindset, you’re wrong.

That thing basically cost an entire house to buy so I wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t get it its own seat. Looking fresh to death, man.

Social media, like I said, is all about flexing the whip. You don’t even have to have it but as long as people think you have it then mission accomplished.

If people think you’re driving a fresh Range Rover you’re prospects increase tenfold. You go from a nobody to having to set appointments to fit in all your friends.

Anything Goes If The Colors Match

Girls take pride in their nails like they are actual people. They show them off on social media like they just gave birth to them. Nails are something many guys just gloss over and never really notice so girls really have to put them out there for some recognition.

This girl decided a perfect compliment to her new nails was a piece of ham and we couldn’t be more confused about it.

This Is Just Ironic

Oh, Charley, this is so ironic that it actually hurts me. There are two things that could’ve happened here: either she’s so dumb that she actually thought she scored 125 but clearly didn’t, or she was trying to boost her IQ and pull a fast one on everyone.

I’m thinking it was number one.
