Why Didn't I Say That?!
Ever find yourself in a position where someone makes a verbal punching bag out of you and you just stand there mute and defenseless? After which, when you find yourself mulling over the incident, you are suddenly filled with come-backs that you could have said; only, it’s too late now.
Before you find yourself in that situation again, here are a few good come-backs that you can use which could really throw-off your opponent. These are from the book of the same title, Why Didn’t I Say That? by Donald Carroll.
1. What do you think you’re doing?!
Annoying you. How’s it working?
I give up. What??
2. You don’t know what you’re talking about.
True, we do have that in common. 😀
3. I wouldn’t do that if I were you.
I certainly hope not.
I don’t blame you.
If I were you, I wouldn’t either. 😀
4. You think you’re so clever.
No, but keep talking. You may yet convince me. 😀
5. Get out of my way!
Whose way should I get in? [hahahaha!!!]
6. You can’t really mean that.
That’s funny. I could have sworn I meant it.
You’re right. I just made it up.
7. You’re a liar!
I admit it. But then of course, I could be lying. 😀
True, or false. Who knows with me?
8. I’m sick and tired of your…
You know, I thought you were looking a bit older.
You’re probably only sick because you’re tired. [hahahaha!]
9. Are you going to answer my question?!
If you promise not to question my answer.
10. I heard that!
You were meant to.
It doesn’t surprise me. You’re always hearing things. 😀
… those are just ten scenarios you can practice on. Will provide more once I finish the book. 🙂
