Clever replies when you are told not to burn bridges

Funny replies to you shouldn't burn bridges

Sometimes in life, we’re left with no other choice other than to burn bridges with some of the people around you. Burning bridges is often defined as intentionally cutting off someone or a group of people with no way to reconnect. While some people may advise you to not completely cut off someone, it can sometimes be the only option. 

In life, there are some people that once you meet them, they turn out to be worse than you could ever possibly imagine, and maybe burning your bridges with them is the only way to get rid of them. However, just because this is sometimes necessary, doesn’t mean that you should do this to everyone. For example, when you quit your job, it may not be your best course of action to tell your boss what you really think of them.

There are many examples of people burning bridges when quitting a job. One time, a flight attendant announced that he quit over the PA system on the airplane, and then took some beers and exited the plane via the emergency chute. Another instance, a reporter from Anchorage, Alaska was reporting on live television when in the middle of her broadcast, she just quit. Both of these people probably burned their bridges with their now former employers!

How to respond when someone says whatever

What can you say when some rude person looks at you and blurts out, “whatever!” Of course, it depends on 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!

Snappy comebacks when someone says I don’t care

How to respond to I don't care

When someone tells you that they don’t’ care, they are basically saying that they are not interested in the topic you are discussing and it is basically not relevant to them. They are telling you to either change the subject or shut up.

If they are a smart ass teenager, they will probably say, “I don’t care!” with attitude and contempt. If you are talking about a trivial conversation like what’s for dinner it’s not a big deal. If you are talking about a subject that is pretty important to you, it is really offensive to hear someone tell you that they don’t care.

Actions actually speak louder than words, you can always tell what people think of you by their actions towards you. Whenever someone is a jerk to me I always think I have less obligation towards them. I don’t have to be polite and listen to them warble on about rubbish anymore.

How you answer depends on who says it to you, and how they say it.We have some great snarky comebacks to stop them in their tracks. Let us know what you think and vote for the best answer from the poll below.

How to respond when someone calls you stupid

When you are called STUPID, use one of our great comebacks. |

If you have ever being labeled stupid, don’t listen, it’s simply not true. There are many forms of intelligence, we all learn in different ways and excel in different areas. You may find math challenging but your friend who is a math genius may end up working for your company one day. It has been said that A students are rule followers who end up working for C students who have more entrepreneurial thinking.

The traditional education system isn’t suitable for many students. I remember seeing a kid on a television show who couldn’t answer questions on a written test, his mom fought to have him tested verbally and he received an A on the exam. He knew the information, he just couldn’t process his answers in the usual written exam format.

Richard Branson is the definition of success, but what you may not know is that he nearly flunked out of school. In fact, he had dyslexia, which made traditional education challenging for him, so he dropped out of school at 16. He started his first business a magazine for young people called Student. His business continued to grow, he started more business and his organization now runs over over 400 different companies.

If Richard Branson was judged by the traditional education system of learning from books and regurgitating the information on a test he probably wouldn’t be considered a successful student. Yet he is incredibly accomplished, and there are very few people who would be able to achieve more than Sir Richard Branson. 

So next time someone calls you stupid shut them up with one of our comebacks and don’t worry about what they think of you.

If  you don’t do well at school, it doesn’t mean you’re stupid

Quentin Tarantino was never a fan of school, with the exception of history class “because it was kind of like the movies,” he confessed to Entertainment Weekly.

Quentin dropped out of high school and worked at BlockBuster writing scripts in his spare time. Actor, Harvey Keitel, came in the local BlockBuster where Quentin was working, and Quentin recognized an opportunity. He asked Harvey if he would read his script “Reservoir Dogs”, he liked it so much he committed to be in the film.

Quentin went from being a sales assistant in a video shop to a famous international movie director in five years. There are many different kinds of intelligence and many forms of success.
