An occurance in which someone will
complain about their lives and/or something bad that happened
to them, only to be topped
else who is trying to sound more worse off to obtain attention. If it is a true
pity fest, THIS person will also
become out-pitied by someone with
an even worse thing that happened
to them. This goes on until finally someone
has the most pitiful story and everyone
feels bad for them, which is what they really wanted.
Pitiful person#1: I'm having such a shitty day, my boyfriend broke
into a thousand million peices
and I failed my math test.
pitiful person#2: Yeah, that sucks I guess, my kitten
got ran over right
of me today, PLUS my dad totally said he hates
Pitiful person#3: Well
MY dad won't let me eat and says I'm dead to him and my kitten
ate my girlfriend right
as she dumped me and then it died on a heart
attack, fell on me, and broke
Pitiful People1 and 2: Awww, you poor thing!
Normal Person: all this pity fest needs is a merry-go-round
made of tears.
