The other day Kara pointed out the dynamic of FWs appropriating chumps’ work:
The Royal “We” of Taking Credit! The only time a narcissist knows how to not use the word “I/me.” Child graduates high school? “We are proud!” Even though narc spent sophomore through senior year skipping visitation because they were too busy on Tinder dates. Kid’s soccer team wins county championships? “We believed in you!” Even though she’s been trying to force kid to call AP their new dad for the last 3 months…
Any time cheater wants to sound like a good parent and be there for the shiny moments, but never actually do the heavy lifting of parenting, out comes the trusty rusty ol’ Royal “We.”
Should be a new CL term.
Could there be a post about The Royal “We” of Taking Credit?
Here we are! I thought it would make a good Friday Challenge — what most egregious thing did you FW take credit for or appropriate?
Thank you for your service. And TGIF!
