What can you say when some rude person looks at you and blurts out, “whatever!” Of course, it depends how they say it and how much eye rolling is involved. If you are dealing with a snarky teenager you may hear whatever a couple a day.
When someone says whatever in rude tone they are being dismissive, telling you they couldn’t give a toss or to go away. Usually, it is meant in a rude and passive aggressive way.
Next time someone says whatever, use one of our snappy comebacks that will hopefully render the smart ass speechless!
Tell us what you think is the best answer by voting on the poll below.
Obviously, it’s not nice to be snarky to dimwitted, oblivious people. There are many different kinds of intelligence. Someone who is a whiz at math may have no common sense when it comes to everyday life. My friend’s mom only values intelligence if someone has a university degree. It is kind of funny because she thinks that she is superior to others because she has a Bachelor of Arts. Yet I don’t think she can think her way out of a paper bag if she tried.
You can’t necessarily choose who you have to deal with on a daily basis, but if someone keeps inflicting their point of view or political opinions on you, perhaps you may want to let them know that you have had enough.
Here are ten comebacks for a person who is acting like the village idiot.
Top ten witty comebacks for the not so bright
I can’t believe that out of 10,000 sperm, you were the quickest.
Somewhere … there is a village being deprived of an idiot!
Zombies eat brains. You’re safe!
A sharp tongue does not mean you have a keen mind.
Thank you. We’re all refreshed and challenged by your unique point of view.
You possess a mind not merely twisted, but actually sprained.
If you’re going to be a smart ass, first you have to be smart. Otherwise, you’re just an ass.
I think you’re acting like yesterday’s coffee, a little weak in the bean!
Hey, your village called they want you back by 6 pm.
Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but you abuse the privilege.
Often when it rains it pours, something bad happens and then another thing hits and it feels like a double whammy and you may think yur life sucks. You can’t help but think what is going on here? Why is so much crappy stuff happening to me?
When life doesn’t go the way you had planned it may seem like everything is going wrong, when in fact life is just pushing you in a new and better direction.
A friend of mine was really upset that she didn’t get a fundraising job she applied for. She took another job with a prestigious organization. Later on, she met the person who had actually taken the position who shared that it was a terrible place to work. My friend was, in fact, lucky that she never landed the job.
When some is feeling like crap because of a few tough knocks offer up some empathy and explain that something better awaits them in their future. Here are a few great things to say to someone who thinks that their life sucks.

Whenever we are learning a new skill most people are probably not the best or clearly suck at it. There is going to be a learning curve for any new project that you take on and you could call this the sucky phase.
When you learned to walk you probably fell down a couple of times, hurt your knee but you just got up and kept trying. When you’re a kid you think other people can walk, I can too! You didn’t withdraw into yourself and think that you are the world’s biggest loser because walking didn’t come to you straight away.
When you practice any skill you naturally get better and better at something. People who pick things up quickly usually enjoy what they are doing, get feedback or a coach to improve their performance
Once you have done something for a while, you look back at your earlier work and can be shocked at how far you have come. What you thought was once your best art work you may now consider cringey.
Sometimes people just need a little encouragement to push through the hard part when they think they suck at something. The only time someone is a loser is when the quit before the challenge has even begun.
Here are a few kind things you can say to encourage the newbie to keep going.

In life you can’t be expected to life everyone, but nobody has the right to come up and let you know that they don’t like you in an abusive way. Someone who does that is a verbal bully, bullies usually don’t expect their target to respond, they purposely pick people who they think are an easy mark for their abuse.
If you are being bullied at school or work, you need to tell a trusted confidante who can help you with the situation.
If you want to let the bully know that you are not going to put up with their abuse, we have some snappy comebacks that will hopefully render the rude individual speechless!
If you can think of an even better comeback, leave a comment, and let us know.
Megan Fox had mean girls who didn’t like her in high school
Megan Fox wasn’t part of the in crowd in high school and had to put up with mean girls.
There were some evil girls in my school and I went to Christian high school. I was 15 and everybody knew that my aspiration in life was to become an actress. One girl came to school on Halloween in a black leather catsuit and everyone thought she was Catwoman. She answered, ‘No I am Megan Fox.’ She was making fun of me. I didn’t say anything to her. I was really shy.
Fox ended up making different kinds of friends instead. The actress continued, “I’ve always gotten along better with boys. That rubbed some people the wrong way. I was not, ever for a second, popular. Everyone hated me, and I was a total outcast, my friends were always guys, I have a very aggressive personality, and girls didn’t like me for that. I’ve had only one great girlfriend my whole life. -Megan Fox.
