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.

Kevin O’Leary is known for being a troublemaker
Arrogance is defined as thinking that you are superior to others and that you are in some way special. It is an insult to be called arrogant by those around you, but often people mistake arrogance for confidence.
Chris was a new stockbroker, he wasn’t a big producer but he was certainly trying to become one. He bought an expensive suit to wear to work and he was trying to project a new air of confidence. Things were going well at work for Chris but his mom thought he was getting a little big for his britches, she believed that he was becoming arrogant. Chris was trying to and act as if, to possess the quality of confidence before he even had it.
You certainly cannot control what other people of think of you, people have their own perceptions. Don’t twist yourself into a pretzel trying to please all the people in your life, 30 percent of the people will love you, thirty will hate you and thirty percent won’t care.
When you are going through a growth stage in your life, not everyone is going to appreciate the new confident you.
If you get told off for being arrogant, you can use one of our clever comebacks below.

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.”

Do you remember when you were a kid and you were forced to apologize when you didn’t want to? Maybe your cousin always made you look like the bad guy, and you took the wrath for something you didn’t do.
You may find yourself in a situation where you are made to apologize when you feel it isn’t necessary. You have to pick your battles in life and choose which ones are worth getting upset about. Adults are supposed to own what they do, feel remorse for their actions and man up and apologize.
In today’s world, with social justice warriors on every corner, people get easily offended about every little thing. They cry and carry on that you offended them, and they take it personally. It is going to be difficult for some of these people to realize that the world doesn’t revolve around them and their needs, and others can’t be expected to walk to eggshells to cater to their needs.
My son mentioned to some friends at school that he found feminine girls with long hair attractive. The girls in his class were furious that he said he preferred a physical type and said that he should apologize for being sexist. Should you really have to apologize because you find certain people attractive?
Here are some snarky apologies when you are forced to say sorry, when you don’t really mean it.
