Comebacks when you are told to GET A LIFE

Get a life is an insult idiotic people use as a last resort when they can’t think of anything better to say. Usually, the people who say this kind of thing are people who don’t have much going on in their own life.

People often say get a life if they find out that someone has a hobby that is different or they consider to be anti-social like gaming. There is nothing wrong with being a champion Fortnite player!

Really, it is the lamest insult around when there truly are much better comebacks out there. Next time an idiot tells you to get a life use one of our great comeback below.
