Peter Grant shows off a recent Dilbert Cartoon at his blog, about "toppers." I used to call them one-upsmen. Everything they had was bigger, better, etc., ad nauseum. The worst example I could think of you couldn't mention your car, your boat, your fishing rod, your computer, etc.without him going on and on about how much more awesome of one he had. Always back home, never where we could see it.
He didn't make it through a second run underway without being transferred off.
