Vainglory

"His house, car and even his girlfriend are all just one big display of vainglory."

Vainglory is the antonym of humility. It is a quality possessed by cocky, egotistical jerks who are constantly reminding you just how smart, attractive, or successful they are.Vainglorious people always have haters!Calumniators Shall Invariably Calumniate T-Shirt - https://amzn.to/2M5BhaK
