I should have said..

Have you ever had someone say a silly or nasty comment to you , and at the time you can’t come up with a good comeback? You are so shocked by what they said that you are rendered speechless. Later on you replay the silly comment in your head, tell your friends all about it, and you stew about what you should have said. This happens to most of us, and can put us off-kilter, out of sorts and shaken! A rare few are blessed with quick wit, and can come up with a quick answers off the top of their head, for the rest of us, I have made the “I should have said” videos and polls where you can vote for the best snappy comeback from multiple answers.

There are a lot of people out there in the world who just don’t think before they speak, it could be your aunt, that moron you went to high school with, or the nut bar from your gym. I was out and a crazy couple started verbally attacking our group. I was perplexed and spent the next two weeks thinking what I should have said… Those crazy people and their outrageous dialogue, gave me the idea to start this web site, however I quickly realized there are many other situations and wild statements we hear from normal people in daily life as well and a broader mission was born. In the “I should have said” videos, I bring a suitable do-over replay giving a “judo-like” rebuttal and reframing back to instigators of verbal attacks. It is my wish that these videos bring a smile to people’s faces, let them know others have shared similar experiences and provide some answers to have ready next time!

If you have an ”I should have said story” or moment that you would like to see posted on the site go to submit and share your story and we may make a video of it.
