Pronunciation: flay-gruh-mee-guize, verb; flay-gruh-mee-goe, noun

Sentence: "What a flagramigo," Tiffany thought, "Wasn't he always that way?" Brent had just dissed her royally as he worked his way around the old high school gym. But, she had been prepared for him earlier, when she saw him flagramigizing almost every chick in the room.At least his abuse of her had only been verbal. All night long she had seen him "accidently" bumping into and spilling drinks on those he was attracted to. She was so thankful for the book called "The Beauty of Boundaries" she had just read.

Etymology: As a verb: from flagrant, meaning consipicuously offensive + amigo, Spanish for friend; noun: flagramigo, meaning a person who is a conspicuously offensive "friend."

I've done exactly this myself. It rarely seems to lead to anything good, other than the occasional moment of smug satisfaction which comes from knowing that you're much more successful than the people who used to bully you at school (but it's not really satisfaction, because didn't you know, deep down, that they'd never amount to anything anyway?)
