    One of my colleagues always boasts about his family wealth

    I am working in a government organisation. One of my colleagues is always boasting about his family wealth as he belongs to a very rich and influential family. It irritates me and many other employees. But everyone is afraid to say anything to him as he has very good relations with the boss. How to deal with such a situation?

    hmm its very funny to hear after being selected for the government sector organisation some people will behave like childish attitude.. i think your also interested in listening to his family wealth,all stupid talk.. because no one talk if you listen to them when you give interest to his talk then its an encouragement for him to initiate his boasting talk about his family.. don't care if he forces you to listen then listen from one ear and leave it from the other ear.. thats it be happy and make fun with of him with others when he is not present.... there is no need to you get irritated and spoil your mood you don't give importance to whatever he speaks listen and leave it fine do that ....

    Hello,

    Friend do not get irritated by such people. Let them boast about their wealth and anything.

    You are there in that company, to work and make your career.
    You should only concentrate on your work and improve your skills and abilities.
    Do not stress yourself on that colleague's talk.
    Just stay calm and chilled and ignore whatever he talks about.
    His words are of no importance to you , so just do not worry about him.

    You just focus on your goal and rest of the things should mean nothing to you.

    See there are different type of people with different mindset and personalities, this is a part of professional world where you have to deal with people whether you like it or not. If you don't like him or his talks than it is better to remain away from him and try to indulge yourself in work whenever he is around. If you will show him that you are free or you will talk to him than due to his personality he will automatically start telling you things about him and his family which you donot like. There are many ways by which you can move away from him when you find that you are not comfortable. As you have said that he is in very good relation with his boss so let it be, you are there because you were eligible and not with any such relation and for that you must be proud. If that person likes talking about his family let him do and whatever you like you do as simple as that.
    In short you can involve yourself with some other person or with your work when he is around.

    I don't find there is anything to worry about him.Since you work in govt. sector,as long as you commit any crime,no one can fire from your job.From what you have posted,I personally feel that this man suffers from superiority complex.That is why he wants to draw everybody's attention by boasting about his family wealth.There is no need to give him much importance.Simply give him a smile whenever he will boasts in front of you.This will keep you away from any sort of unrest within the office premises.Ignore him as much as possible so that you can keep yourself away from any sort of verbal contradiction with him.

    These kind of people are still kids because these all things we did in our childhood days if you get irritated by his words then you can directly say him that all the time talking about one thing is not good and it also irritate you then he will understand that you are not interested to listen those bullshit, so try this.
    If you dont wants to say anything to hima as he is your colleague then do not listen those things once he feels that you are not listening to him then he will understand that you are not interrested in listening to him, this will be the indirect way to get rid of such situation.
    Many people are suffering from these kind of problems and this is the best way to ignore them.
    hope it will help you.

    Dear first think that he has very good relations with your boss and know that why is this and may be because of performing well in working so that you should try to make good relations with your boss because if you will get success in making comfortable and close relations with your boss then you may also share so many things to them and ask about everyone who is working and then you can complain to your boss about his behavior because many of the employees are disturbed because of him so each one should get a very good and proper solution to get rid of this situation

    Whenever he comes to you or anyone then make yourself busy instantly in working because he can not interrupt anyone while working and when he try to talk to you then you should ignore him at all and say that you are really busy in work and will to you later or after completing my work and if sometimes he praise himself and wealth of his family then you should not try to make him understand that this is not good because this type of people can not understand directly so try to save yourself first from him and whenever he do ti then listen and throw out of your mind

    All the best
