@boomerang,
Sorry, It's not that. Is it even a word?
I only know "preemptive" which has the similar (but less negative) definition to what I mean, but I doubt if that can be applied to a person.

@Lordyaswas,
It's not arrogative. Never heard of it. Don't throw anything to anyone, Mr. Yaswas. Hahaa

@stellabel,
Brilliant!

Walter and Submariner now look like a couple of narrywanglers.

@stellabel,
You missed the point. This is humor. These ARE intended to be made up words.

All of the possibilities we could think of have been provided plus suggestions have been offered for all of the sites that offer synonyms.

@stellabel,
Just because you haven't heard of it doesn't mean it's not a word.

I bet there's a considerable amount of words you've never heard of. You clearly have a very limited vocabulary, you ungrateful chimp.

@stellabel,
I believe the word you're looking for is "Bogart."

If not that, maybe "presumptuous."

Then again, you might be thinking of "aggrandizing"

Or maybe.....

@layman,
I wasn't through guessing when I got kicked off line.

Rumplestiltskin, perchance?

"Disgusting piece of crap?"

"Blustering, bombastic buffoon." maybe

Greasy gluttonous gormandizer?

Pompous pretentious prick?

Selfish solipsistic sweathog?

Sorry-ass mofo?

How many guesses do I get?
