Man brags about making his first million, ruins family's celebration 😬💸

A man asks if he is an a**hole for ruining his family's New Year celebration after bragging about making his first million. In a typical Asian family reunion, the old people in the family love to 'check up' on their nieces and nephews. When the man's aunt began to list off all his lack of achievements, he couldn't take it anymore and decided to brag about his wealth. His dad asked him to step outside to relax as he might have just ruined everyone's New Year celebration. Was he wrong to brag in front of his family? Read on for some interesting comments and reactions.
