What to say when you are accused of bragging

Great replies when people call you a BRAGGER

When you have accomplished a lot of things and you are proud of your achievements, insecure people may accuse you of bragging. You can either worry about being called a bragger, hide your light or find a new group of people to hang out with who want more out of life.

Envy can kill relationships, people who have jealousy and competitive feelings may try to take others down. Have you ever heard of the crab mentality where crabs could easily escape from a bucket but some of the crabs pull the other crabs back down to the bottom? The same behaviour happens with people, some individuals will try and reduce the confidence of others by and try to stop their progress. They do this by calling others braggers, by sabotaging their actions and putting people down.

Successful people reach out to other successful people and find mentors who help them to move up to the next level. Sometimes you have to leave the people on the path to nowhere behind, and find a new group of like-minded people.

Next time you are accused of being a bragger by a small-minded crab, use one of our clever comebacks and don’t worry about what other people think.

Top ten comebacks for someone who gets angry over small things

Check out what to say when someone gets angry and overreacts

Have you ever spent time with somebody who gets all wound up over the smallest things? Being around someone who is angry and overreacts can suck the fun out of any situation, and you find yourself thinking, “I didn’t sign up for this.”

You expect people of a certain age to be in control of their emotions and act appropriately instead of lashing out at others.

I know someone who is sensitive to loud noises, and he gets really angry when people drop things and are noisy. The people who spend time with Darren think he is overreacting, but he thinks he is justified telling people to be quiet. Darren should put in a pair of earplugs and stop expecting people to cater to his special needs. After all, it’s not like he owns the library or the coffee shop.

Darren is self-employed and often works on his online business in coffee shops and in the workroom/quiet room at the library. Somebody working in the quiet room started typing loudly, and Darren kept turning around and giving them the evil eye. He even told the girl to be quiet. For real? Darren, get over yourself!

The comebacks below will let the offender know they need to get their act together and calm down.

What to say to someone who gets angry and overreacts

Great comebacks when people call you picky

How to respond if you are called picky

Anytime you have standards, people start complaining and calling you too picky. Don’t let it upset you, just keep calm and carry on having enough respect for yourself that you know you deserve someone who has a lot to bring to the table.

Never apologize for having high standards, the people who want to be in your life will rise up to meet them.

The only bad thing about being too picky is you might miss out on potential opportunities. If you refuse to date guys who wear socks with sandals you could be missing out on a great guy, who just needs a few tweaks in the wardrobe department.

Below are a few snappy comebacks  that may come in handy if you are called picky. Go ahead and vote for the best comeback. If you can think of an even better clever comeback, do let us know.

What to say when people say you’re getting gray hair

Funny replies when people comment on your GREY HAIR


When you get your first grey hair, you might be a little surprised. After all, grey hair is for older people, not a young whipper snapper like yourself!

Then all of a sudden, you start noticing more and more grey hair. They’re sprouting up everywhere on your head. Your friends and parents keep pointing out that your silky beautiful hair is now starting to sprout strands of grey.

I have a relative who was getting grey hair, and he decided that he wanted to use henna instead of hair dye because it was better environmentally. He told me that he was going to leave the henna on his hair overnight for 12 hours, and I strongly let him know that was probably not a good idea. We all know that hair dye of any kind for 12 hours isn’t going to end well, but he is the kind of person you just can’t say anything to. He knows it all!

He slept overnight with the henna on his hair, and I swear his hair looked like Pennywise from Stephen King’s movie It! His hair was bright orange, and it was three times as red as Archie’s hair from Riverdale. It was so shocking we couldn’t stop laughing, and he still wouldn’t accept that his hair looked absolutely absurd. My friend would walk down the street, and people would stare as if he was a circus attraction or a clown. His niece said to him, “Why did you die your hair bright orange?” After that, he had to finally accept his hair looked ridiculous. So, you do need to be careful with the hair dye!

The next time someone points out that your luscious locks contain a few grey strands, use one of our fun comebacks.

Clever comebacks if people complain you’re so slow

Check out what to say when people call you SLOW

Urban dictionary defines slow as, ” a person who is not particularly quick in their mental processes.”

Whenever you try something new you are going to be slower than someone who has been doing something for a while. When you learned to drive it probably took a while before you could drive without spending too much time thinking about it. You probably drive around your town now like Lewis Hamilton, the famous race card driver with ease.

A girl I knew was new to cooking, she made her first cake using whole wheat flour. The cake took forever to make and turned out to be a disaster, it could have been used as a paperweight. Usually, whole wheat flour is used for muffins, not cakes. Now my friend whips up a cake in no time and makes birthday cakes for all of her friends, using white flour of course.
