Are you ever overwhelmed with the urge to tell someone to shut up? There are chatty people who engage in genuine conversations which is fine, but non-stop talkers who talk at you are frustrating and exhausting.
Some people monopolize conversations, stopping anyone else from getting a word in. Often, the conversation hog doesn’t get to the point or goes off on tangents, driving their listeners crazy. The funny thing is that they don’t even notice that they have lost their audience.
If you can’t take it anymore, here are a few things you can say to let the windbag know that you have had enough.
Have you ever had to deal with someone who is manipulative and loves to cause trouble? Every office or school has a troublemaker, and causing drama is their unique calling. Having to deal with a troublemaker can make you not want to attend an event, work, or school.
Troublemakers like to stir up controversy by spreading gossip and starting rumors about people, and then they turn around and act all innocent, claiming they were only trying to help the situation.
Here are a few snappy comebacks to let the troublemaker know you are onto them and their manipulative behaviour.
What to say to a troublemaker
Congratulations on your ability to create drama out of absolutely nothing.
Don’t tell me what they said about me, tell me why they were so comfortable saying it around you.
I see you brought your extra large spoon to stir up trouble.
You don’t like drama? Funny how your name comes up as executive producer on every single episode around you!
I am returning your nose. I found it in my business.
Stop creating a drama and then complaining about it.
It is actually pretty easy not to be a shitty human being. Try it sometime.
So, let me get this straight, you talk shit about me then you make it into MY problem when I say something.
If drama follows you wherever you go. Maybe you are the drama.
I hope one day you choke on all the shit you talk.

We’ve all had the guy or girl who just doesn’t stop staring. You can feel them staring at you, even if you are not looking directly at them. It has probably happened to you many times, and it can be very awkward, especially when they are checking you out and trying to make eye contact.
If the person is really hot, you may just want to take it as a compliment and enjoy the attention. If the person is not so hot, you might feel a little creeped out.
Next time some someone can’t stop staring at you, use a few snappy comebacks to let the person know they are giving you the creeps.

We have all met a jerk who makes every situation difficult and never realizes that they are the problem. You don’t have to try to win over the haters; after all, you are not the jerk whisperer. Life is way too short to spend your valuable time dealing with jerks. Sometimes a jerk will have it out for you for no reason. They may verbally attack you, belittle you in public, or embarrass you.
I went to pick up my nephew from school one day. One of the parents, a 40-year-old jerk, was on the playground. I had heard about him from others, putting kids down while elevating his own kid to look better.
My nephew was applying to a high school that was challenging to get into at the time. This guy said to him, “Do you really think that you will be in the 20 percent who will get accepted?” I just couldn’t believe that an adult could be so unkind to a kid!
If you can get the jerk out of your life, do so as soon as possible. Don’t waste your precious time thinking about the idiot.
If you get tired of putting up with the jerk and their nasty behavior, here are a few snappy comebacks to let them know they need to back off.

I received this email from a jerk
This email made me laugh because this guy was such a jerk and yet he couldn’t see it.
He comes to a website with free content and then complains he has to scroll down slightly on his phone. Talk about first world problems, imagine if Mark had to walk a mile to a well to get water for his family.
It would have taken him a lot longer to find the web page to submit a comment than to scroll down past a couple of lines of text. We all have a choice of how we chose to spend time on this planet, some petty people spend their lives majoring in minor things.
Everyone has to deal with haters in their lives. I sent Mark the following message.
I should have said, “You have the rest of your life to be a jerk, why not take today off?”
They say that every bad situation contains the seed of good as well. I was thinking of ways to expand my content and Mark has just given me the idea to share emails from morons to prove a point.
Justin Timberlake had to deal with a lot of jerks in high school
Singer Justin Timberlake wasn’t so popular growing up because he preferred music to football and in the state of Tennessee, where he grew up, that just wasn’t considered cool. He’s pretty popular with the ladies now, but he reveals he was picked on all the time at school and he had I had terrible acne and weird hair. When Justin was on the Ellen Dengeneres show he said, “The thing about life … is …… is … everything … you feel makes you weird is essentially what’s gonna make you sexy as an adult…. When you’re a kid I think you try so hard to fit in and when you get older you realize that fitting in isn’t really the thing that’s more interesting…. I would not be here if I would have listened to the kids who told me I was a terrible singer and I was a sissy…. Be different.”

We all have things we are insecure about, maybe it’s your flabby thighs, you’re becoming forgetful or you can’t spell to save your life. None of us are perfect nor ever will we ever be.
When you have someone in your life who keeps pointing out your insecurities it can be offensive, especially if they know it is something you are sensitive about. It’s one thing for your uncle to point out how big your feet are, but does he need to mention it at every family gathering!
Sometimes people make comments pretending to have your best interests at heart when they are actually making a snide remark. Now those are the people who are truly in need of a good comeback.
These comebacks will let the offender know you are not interested in their unsolicited snarky comments next time they call you insecure.
Go ahead, tell us what you think and vote for the best answer.
