This is the place to post questions and discussions on usage and style. The members of the Wordwizard Clubhouse will also often be able to help you to formulate that difficult letter.
A: (Has just done something incredible in front of B).
B: (Doesn't look happy and says) Bloody showoff.
Hi everybody! Are there any polite ways to say instead of saying "Bloody showoff"?
Thanks a lot!
No, because the whole point of uttering that exclamation is to be rude and dismissive.
Erik is, of course, correct. But there are less forceful expletives that could be used, which would be regarded as less rude, if not exactly polite. E.g. "damned showoff".

Erik and Phil White : Thank you both so much for your answers. They are helpful. Enjoy your weekend.
...and definitely avoid "fuckin' blow-ass" if you're trying to be nice about it.
